Today we will discuss the launch, explore, debrief methodology. This is a great way of teaching a math lesson so that the children become more involved in the lesson as they are given a chance to explore math concepts on their own at their own developmental level. You may noticed that this episode was originally done through Facebook Live, which was certainly an adventure...

Early Math Concepts

 
 

Today Mom makes me do the talking as we discuss the very earliest concepts in mathematics that children need to develop in order to be successful in counting, logic, and number sense. We will discuss rote counting, one-to-one correspondence, conservation of number, cardinality, and hierarchal inclusion.

If you would like to learn more about early math skills, here are some great resources:
