Part-Whole Circle Math

Right now Jenna(4) and I are doing a new Part-Whole Circle problem every day.  Focusing on word problems helps teach reading and math at the same time.  It also compliments what Jenna is doing in Right Start Level A.

But you don’t need a formal math program to try this idea with your preschooler at home.  Here’s how it works.

First we read and discussed the word problem.  I had Jenna write a "B" and a "G" in the part circles, for boys and girls.
