Math Tips for Home...

Count everything! Children need to know that numbers relate to things no matter their size – that the number tells how many. Count blocks, forks, steps, socks, noodles, etc. Count forward and backward.
Look for numbers in the environment and talk about them: look for them on signs, on buildings, on phones, on remotes, etc. Don’t just throw away junk mail and flyers – have your children use them as number search pages (for example, put a circle around each 7 that you find).

  • Play a board game
  • Visit your local library
  • Read a recipe and cook something yummy together!
  • Create a comfy reading space in your home.
  • Put your child in charge of reading the grocery list at the store.
