Maths at home

Early math skills are being used by children throughout their activities, experiences and daily routines, whether at school or at home. For example, becoming familiar with their routines such as brushing their teeth, getting dressed, taking a nap, and learning about going shopping with their parents can all become math learning opportunities when approached a certain way.

Math is Everywhere!

Mathematics plays a major role in a child’s development and helps children makes sense of the world around them. Children between the age of one to five years old are beginning to explore patterns and shapes, compare sizes and count objects.  Math play is evident in pretend play, block play, literacy play, outdoor play and science play, for example

 

Any of the following commonly-found items can be used as tools to help teach fundamental math skills like adding and subtracting:

  • Peg Number Boards
  • Counting Bears
  • Car Garages
  • Magnetic 2D and 3D Blocks
  • Number Tracing Sheets
  • Tangrams
  • Playdough
  • Books and Rhymes
  • Puzzles (e.g. jigsaw puzzle

 

Parents can play an important role in influencing and being a role model for children by providing opportunities for children to learn and develop new skills. Adults need to allow children to direct their own play and support them by enhancing or extending their play. Children need opportunities to:

  • Discover and create.
  • Use number concepts and skills to explore.
  • Develop confidence in their ability to think things through.
  • Solve meaningful problems.
  • Create connections to help discover relationships (e.g. characteristics).
