Preschoolers are Natural Mathematicians

Here's a resource to share with the families you work with every day!

Preschoolers aren’t yet ready to memorize multiplication tables, but every day in the classroom they explore math concepts they will use when they move on to primary school. Try these ideas at home to help your preschooler explore math.

TA Tip

Cardinality is the knowledge that the last number counted represents the number of objects in the group. It’s a very important concept for children to master in early numeracy. One way to support this is to ask “how many” questions after a child has finished counting. Teach them that the last number they counted represents how many.

This TA Tip was graciously shared by Kris Tabor-Hall, Training and Technical Assistance Specialist.

Child Care Aware of NH is here to assist you! To learn more about how we can support your Preschool Practices, please refer to our Services and Supports Guide.

Playing Around with Number Composition

Get inspired when children not only understand something new about their mathematical worlds, but also when they choose to use this new knowledge in their play! You can build upon children’s capacity for number composition and decomposition through engaging games and stories and authentic and meaningful experiences. With your help, children can come to see math as fun and as a useful tool to use every day.
