What Do You Remember?
02 February, 2009
Mark and I were talking about what we did at a young age to help us develop number sense. We were talking about natural activities that promoted the essential pre-number concepts of matching, sorting, comparing and ordering. I remember playing store with my grandma where she would put money amounts on different knick-knacks and I would have a change purse with different coins. I thought it was so fun to pick out different objects and add up the total and pay with the change. I was probably between 4 and 5 when I did this. Mark remembers taking a bag of M&Ms and sorting the candy by color then eating one piece at a time until the different piles had the same amount. Email us and let us know what you did to help you learn these important pre-number concepts in the early years of your life. firstname.lastname@example.org
