Yesterday I shared one of the activities that we did for our preschool reading as well as provided a FREE Fall Preschool Reading Mini Kit. Today, I will be exploring preschool math under our fall theme. Let’s walk.
As I have stated in my series Preschool for Mommies, there are certain things that preschoolers should be exposed to. Some of these are:
Graphing is simply a visual way for preschoolers to compare two or more items. In the math mini kit, we compared the amount of times the die landed on the: acorn, red leaf, gold leaf, tree, pumpkin and tree.
Pattern recognition is simply the ability to identify a pattern and then duplicate it or determine what comes next in the sequence.
J will be exposed to graphing for the first time with the math printable that I created for her. Here is a sneak peak of what was included.With this activity, we simply cut the card the page into three strips and then used clothespins to clip the correct number. For example, there is one apple, so when J identifies the correct number she will clip a clothespin on the number 1. You may want to laminate it however, if you plan to re use it.
Thaleia from Something 2 Offer, also gave me some ideas of hands on Math for J that I can use in the future. She looks at size sequencing, 1 to 1 correspondence with spiders (something J would NEVER go near as even a mosquito gives her nightmares) as well as an Apple Worm Match activity. Take a peak here.
Jennifer from Chestnut Grove Academy, completed a leaf themed workbox week. Check it out here, you may get some extra ideas. Her kiddos explored patterns with leaves as well as counted leaves.
