• #### Building Number Sense

Most of us learned about mathematics long before we began writing out equations and analyzing word problems. Math for toddlers is not complex arithmetic or even simple addition and subtraction; rather, it is learning what numbers are and how they are used. This idea is called number sense. Math activities for preschoolers focus on basic counting, what different numbers mean, which numbers are more and which are less, and how numbers are used in everyday situations. The knowledge that three blocks is the same number as three balls or three trucks is vital to learning more advanced math and can be exciting and mind-blowing to young children.
