In my 3rd grade classroom, our big math challenges are multiplication, factors, and elapsed time. In my conversations with parents, I’m never surprised to discover that the students who understand these concepts best are those who were exposed to math almost as early as they began speaking. The students who struggle are those who weren’t introduced to math until they needed to learn it for preschool or Kindergarten. Give your kids a strong start in life by teaching them math concepts BEFORE they need to know it for school! Here are some truly great activities you can count on to help your toddler learn math.
