Through instruction and play, students are exposed to a variety of mathematical skills and concepts. In addition to reviewing basic shapes and colors, students use these attributes to sort objects and explore patterning. Students practice counting daily and compare the relative size of numbers from 0-20. During the second half of the year, math skills include more advanced patterning, counting to and back from a given number, counting larger groups of items using organization and one-to-one correspondence and more solid recall and identification of printed numerals from 0-20, along with their order on the number line. Numeral writing is introduced through our handwriting program.
