Each child was given a group of goldfish crackers, and a row with a different number on it.

The children were then asked what the number was, to put their fish on the quantity (displayed as fish), and to count their fish as they did so. These goldfish rows ranged from 1-10.

Once again, we are using things that our little ones are naturally interested in to teach about counting, numeral recognition, and patterns!

Not limited to just numbers, preschool math incorporates a broad range of skill sets and knowledge including sorting, colors and recognizing groups and patterns.

These activities teach our little ones about problem solving and using logic. This activity also involved fine motor skills, as they manipulated Their fish and attached them to their rows.
