Introducing Math to Preschoolers

Wow!  Math for a preschooler?  Where do you begin?  Big boy loves books and learning about new things.  So letters and words are much easier to point out in our every day lives.  But where do you draw in math?

Check out this great article about how to introduce math in very practical ways to your preschooler.

Looking for further ideas to introduce numbers and math?

  • Spend some time playing with number puzzles.  These are easily picked up at Walmart, Target, or Toys R Us.
  • Spend time in the kitchen.  Look for numbers in the measurements and directions.
  • Take note of numbers in the grocery store.  Use the scale and check out the prices on the shelf.
  • Or Big Boy's favorite: I took two bites so now I get a cookie?
Let us know how you're making math applicable to your preschooler's life.  What Works for You?
