There are so many preschool math process skills (over 13). You know you need to create preschool lesson plans for math but where do you start? What are developmentally appropriate math learning objectives for preschool? What types of fun, engaging hands-on activities should you create?
Here I'll be covering those questions and more! Let's get started!
Teaching Preschool Math:
Do you wonder how and what to plan for regarding math? I get it - there are 5 general math areas with many learning objectives! On the Teaching Preschool Math page here, we'll talk about those 5 areas as well as what to consider when planning and teaching math to preschoolers.
Preschool Math Process Skills:
There are so many math process skills that preschoolers learn throughout the early years --over 16!! Want a description of each one? You'll find descriptions and more details on them here on the math concepts and process skills page.
Interest Learning Center for Materials:
Many classrooms have a Math & Manipulatives Interest Center in their classroom. Why are they combined? Because many math activities help develop fine (small) motor (muscle) development while also supporting math learning objectives!
Our preschoolers LOVE using our potato head collection. So much so, that I created a way to use it as a math learning tool. Check out my Preschool Potato Head Math Game!
Preschool Math Workshop:
Are you looking for professional development to learn more about math in preschool? I have a 4-hour self-study workshop all about Preschool Math. You can learn about that here.
