Here’s an easy way to introduce mathematical language and concepts to children at a very young age; sneak in math during playtime! Today Jenna(26m) and I played with her doggies and blocks. She thought we were just having fun. Actually, I was teaching her the difference between more, less, the most and the least.
Lucy has more blocks than Biscuit. Biscuit has less blocks than Lucy.
Who has the most blocks? Lucy! Who has the least amount of blocks? Biscuit!
Now it is a little less obvious. Who has more blocks? Rosie! Who has less blocks? Biscuit!
Now that I’m looking at these pictures it occurs to me that I should make a homemade book out of them. Hmmmm…. Stay tuned!
