Laying the foundation for math skills
Resources and training for ECE providers
There are lots of ways to help children build the foundation for future math skills in your early childhood program's daily routine. 
The Erikson Institute Early Math Collaborative has resources to help you include simple math concepts every day. In this article, ideas on ways to practice counting using children's favorite books are shared. "Children need experiences and practice counting in different, flexible ways while learning these rules of counting. And what better way to do that than through the books they love to hear over and over."
You can also check out 4C for Children training to help enhance the activities in your classroom. In Butler County on Aug. 14 attend Creating Your Math Curriculum and gain a background in the types of math experiences that preschoolers should have access to in your program. In Warren County on Aug. 15 attend Using Literacy to Enhance Math and learn how to use children's books to enhance mathematical thinking.
