Lego Matching

Using Legos and number boards with illustrations, we learned and revisited counting and Arabic numerals! Each child was given a group of Legos, and a number board with different illustrations of Legos on it.

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 Legos and attached them to their rows.
