Math + Science

Math and science are also great ways to support early childhood literacy. Here are a few tips:


Math for young children consists three areas: counting, shapes and patterns. By taking opportunities during everyday activities to count up and down, notice patterns and play with shapes, parents and caregivers are helping children get the foundation they need in order to start school and learn addition/subtraction, algebra, and geometry.

Math is everywhere and adults can help children see it by counting cars or steps when talking a walk, noticing patterns when building with Legos, counting scoops of flour when baking, looking at shapes when doing a puzzle, counting fingers when taking a bath and much more!

Remember to have fun while doing math with young children!
