Shamrock Math

Children use math all day long!

During each activity, from counting the stairs they climb, to sorting blocks and stating, “there are more red ones,” to separating the carnivores from the herbivores (for the dinosaurs’ own safety, of course!), children are using.

Knowing the math skills your preschoolers are developing and should be developing will help you observe what they are learning at school so that you can be aware of their strengths and weaknesses.

There are a total of sixteen math concepts that we try to implement across our curriculum.

These include observation, problem solving, language, one-to-one correspondence, number sense, shapes, spatial sense, sets and classifying, ordering/seriation, comparing, patterning, counting, measurement, parts and wholes, numbers and symbols, and graphing.

For this activity, we incorporate language, one-to-one correspondence, and number sense into this fun shamrock project! Students counted items, classified them according to quantity, and then match that quantity with a numeral.
