Educators know that working with your hands does wonders for your brain. That’s why our Readiness math program emphasizes hands-on learning. As the year progresses, your child will recognize numerals, count, sequence, pattern, measure, sort, and classify through activities that are skillfully disguised as play. Your child will learn to count by affixing candle cutouts to a paper cake for a make-believe birthday party.
She will learn to classify by sorting rocks, feathers, pompoms, and blocks into baskets of hard or soft materials. He will count apple slices and measure sugar to make turnovers, then eagerly watch as the timer ticks off the minutes to snack time. If you watched a Readiness classroom in action, you might wonder, “Is my child building important math skills or playing?” The undeniable answer is, “Both!”
