Start Math Early and Make Math Fun


Incorporating science and Math in a child’s life outside of school time is the key. Children spend majority of their time outside the classroom, parents and educators can make use of this enormous chunk of time but introducing math using hands-on activities. Basic concepts of physics and Math can be introduced early-on in life through active play. Handing out math worksheets and standardized math tests are not known to inspire a love of math in most children.

The Math in STEM education might be the last letter in the word but it is also the most important. Being proficient in math helps adults lead a regular life with confidence and teaches skills of problem solving. Mathematics is everywhere and plays a major role in a child’s development. Math play is evident in pretend play, literacy play, outdoor play and science.

The basic math skills teachers provide in early childhood make up the building blocks of a child’s entire academic career. When preschool teachers focus on math during the early education days, they are making the life of the child a bit easier for elementary school math. Children must learn fast once they enter elementary school and just addition or subtraction skills are not enough. Therefore, incorporating math in normal activities outside of school is crucial.

How can parents encourage the love of Math in your child?

Parents/ adults should let children direct their own play and provide support and resources to extend their play. Children will develop math skills by discovering and exploring meaningful problems, creating connections between different patterns, using number concepts and skills to explore. Hands-on teaching methods work best for preschoolers and children greatly benefit from it.

At Banyan Tree Kidz’ we always incorporate Math play in every box. Concepts of measurement, numeracy, classification and shapes and patterns are part of our STEM learning kits. When children dive into these STEAM learning kits every month, they are constantly developing math skills through hands-on activities which teach counting, decision-making (deciding how long to cut a string), spatial awareness, thinking how to paint their birdhouse, studying a moon chart and learning to solve tangram puzzles.
