Why working with your child is important
Understanding the relationship between the shape of a number and the quantity it represents is essential for the beginning steps of numeracy and mathematics. In this exercise you teach your child the shape of the number by tracing with your finger, the name of the number by saying and your child repeating, the association of the number to a quantity with the rulers, and the sequence.
These are the early building blocks of numeracy in preparation for later counting exercises and math equations.
One of the best predictors of success in the classroom is an understanding of numbers and quantities. Children who are exposed to a richness of mathematical vocabulary through practical experiences, are more likely to meet with success in mathematics through kindergarten and the later grades at school.
Early exposure in a fun and safe environment means your child is developing an understanding of foundational skills to build upon. If your child starts kindergarten with an awareness of the relationship between number symbols and quantities they are more likely to understand what is being taught in the classroom. Being prepared for kindergarten means your child has the advantage of understanding learning.
Research shows that the best predictor for success in school is a readiness for learning by kindergarten age. At Earlyminds we design and make materials to build an understanding of the foundational skills needed to prepare for preschool and through kindergarten, grade one, and grade two.
