When children play in the classroom using manipulative toys, building in the block area, setting the table, taking two crackers for snack, following a recipe and playing in the sandbox or water table, they are developing mathematical skills and concepts.

WPELC Fosters Math Concepts by

  • Sequencing (how to put things in order)
  • Matching (what is alike and what is different)
  • Sorting and grouping
  • Patterns (creating them and noticing them)
  • One to one correspondence
  • Part/whole relationships
  • Spatial relationships
  • Time
  • Number concepts
  • Seriation (big/small, heavy/light, etc.) and arranging things in order
