Maths time πŸ§ πŸ’¬

One of our goals Β is to help children to develop a productive disposition towards mathematics. We incorporate in our daily routine mathematic concepts and problem solving skills.

A great indicator of progressing in the right direction is when a child prompts the adults to play mathematic games using specific terms: how many, more, less, if adding, if taking away, equal, same ( for example at meal time: I have 5 olives if I eat 1 how many are left?)

Today the main objectives are: learning numbers and how we can use them in day to day life, the recognition of numbers 1-3, graphic representation of the numbers 1-3, estimating a number of objects and checking by counting, using playdough to create numbers, strengthening hand’s small muscle in preparation for writing, completing more that one task in the right order.

AoLD: CL, PD, PSED, L, M

Next steps: providing more opportunities and materials to create, write and use numbers and mathematic concepts, and improve problem solving skills: e.g. sorting and ordering activities which involve: analysing data, making decision, check if it’s the right decission/ estimation by counting, problem solving, making connections, supporting children towards confidence and self reliance in solving problems ty using concrete objects to working with symbols and abstract situations, mental reasoning- all through play and repetition.
