Ways to Fit Math Into Your Everyday Life At Home:
- Count EVERYTHING!!
- If possible, when your child is counting ask them to physically touch each item.
- Find items in your home shaped like a square, circle, rectangle, triangle, oval, and rhombus (diamond).
- Sort shoes by different attributes (color, size, laces vs. no laces).
- Count the number of stairs in your home by 1's, then 2's, then 5's, and if possible by 10's. This will help your child to count groups of objects and then add the remaining items by 1's.
- Sort and fold socks. How many socks make a pair? Is a pair an even or odd number?
- Find out how many books are on your bookshelf. Sort your books by hard cover and soft cover, color, size, and type of book.
- Find out how many clocks are in your home. Are more of your clocks digital or analog? Can you tell time to the hour? Can you read the numbers on the clock forwards and backwards?
- Sort interesting objects like buttons, candy, and coins.
- Identify pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters, and their values.
- When taking a walk, read the numbers on the houses you pass. What is your house number?
- Practice your address and phone number.
- Read price tags while grocery shopping. Which item cost more? Which item cost less?
