🧮Want to get your preschoolers to enjoy math? Let them learn through real objects! During my teacher training, we were taught to introduce math concepts with the concrete, pictorial, abstract (CPA) approach -children will first learn with concrete materials 🙌🏻 (we call them manipulatives), then apply their learning to pictures 🖼 and finally to abstract math terms like algebra, equations etc. 📈

⭐️For preschoolers, I highly recommend you ditch the assessment books, and build a strong math foundation by letting them play with concrete materials as much as possible 🎈 Let them associate positive experiences with math, so they don’t detest math in future!🌈

Here’s a throwback to the time I introduced addition to D. I remembered he collected so many candies from birthday goodie bags, but I wouldn’t let him eat any 🙊 So we repurposed them as math manipulatives! This video shows the concrete approach as well as the number line. 📌More simple math activities on the blog! (Under Play and Learn) Link in IG profile too. #mathactivities #mathlearning ...
