“The beauty of mathematics only shows itself to more patient followers.” – Maryam Mirzakhani
Mathematics is a fascinating subject. The tool we use in everyday life to sort, count, measure and analyse, are all element of Mathematics. When it comes to teaching Mathematics to the Kindergarteners, the concept extends from numbers to patterns, shapes and some basic pre-math concepts. Learning Maths is important for young children. It gives them the confidence to explore and develop an understanding of the world around them.
The Nursery students were introduced to the concept of “more and less” through some interactive activities. In one such activity, two bunches of grapes were drawn on the floor, students had to identify the bunch with more grapes and then paint the grapes. In another activity, two boxes of crayons were placed, and they had to point out the box containing more crayons.
Finally, a scrap book activity was done to reinforce the concept of more and less. The activities helped students not only to enhance their logical, visual, fine motor and gross motor skills, but also expand their understanding of pre-math concepts.
