Finally, age-appropriate games, art, bookmaking, puppetry, fingerplays, and more to teach early math concepts to preschoolers. These creative, exciting, and engaging activities are refreshing alternatives to worksheets for teaching your children numbers. With these simple and inexpensive activities, children learn how to write and identify numerals, determine amounts through tactile and visual play, count from zero to ten and ten to zero, and do simple addition, subtraction, and estimation. Each chapter focuses on a different number, so that each week you can concentrate on a new number while engaging a child's curiosity, sense of play, five senses, and interest. Pre-written letters to parents are included to encourage home involvement with the number of the week. There is also an overview of children's natural mathematical development, which explains the best methods of both teaching and learning.
