Think back to being math class in school.
I'm guessing, like most people, you don't have the fondest memories.
Even if you like math, you can probably recall many boring hours of sitting at a desk, reciting the multiplication table or being taught arithmetic from a blackboard.
But math can be incredibly fun and interesting for young children, when we teach it in a way that aligns with their interests.
Just like anything in Montessori, math can be taught by "following the child".
In fact, Dr. Montessori believed that all children are born with a ‘mathematical mind.’
Slippery Fish is also a great song to learn about sizes and talk about bigger vs. smaller.
Loose parts, like the ones that Grapat makes, are also great for counting and sorting. Children ages 3 - 4+ will eventually use them for imaginative play too.
