We may not always notice, but preschool age children are practicing math skills every day through play. If you observe a group of preschoolers in play you’ll quickly note that they naturally sort, recognize shapes, count and sequence important items, understand an item’s weight and create patterns. As with any skill, ensuring the basic, foundational concepts are well understood by toddler and preschool age children is key to all future math achievements. Let’s explore some ways to encourage your toddler or preschooler’s math skills using daily routines!
