When our students master basic math skills in preschool, Kindergarten, and first grade they create a strong foundation for the years of math to come, which is essential for their success.
We know that students need to work on:
- number sense,
- one to one correspondence,
- early geometry skills,
- how to measure and collect data,
- early algebraic thinking,
- and basic addition and subtraction concepts and facts.
And on top of all that, they need problem solving skills, analytical skills, and reasoning skills.
But superseding the list of standards they have to know, we also have the unique opportunity to help them fall in love with math. As their first teachers, we can show them math is fun, math is engaging, and math is exciting.
So we do math with animals and creepy crawlies. And we do math activities themed for each holiday. And we offer our kiddos ice cream and popcorn math projects.
Which sets them up for a lifetime of looking forward to math. To be excited to do math and solve problems that come their way.
