Going to school for the first time is an exciting, highly anticipated event for both parents and their young children. Though that time may be a year or two away, it is not too early to begin preparing your child for a successful school experience. Research has shown that repetition is essential for the brain to learn and recall information. The quick and engaging activities in this book will provide your child with repeated practice of developmentally appropriate math skills and vocabulary. While these activities may seem simplistic, their mastery is essential. To make sense of numbers, children must learn not only the verbal counting sequence 1, 2, 3…, but also the way to connect each count with an object known as one-to-one correspondence. In addition, children must understand the fact that the last spoken number corresponds to the number of items being counted. Becoming fluent, or automatic, with these skills helps develop fluency and build a strong foundation in mathematical thinking and reasoning, an important skill for academic success.
Upon your child’s completion of each activity, use the provided incentive chart with stickers to track progress and celebrate your child’s success.
