Talk numbers

Use numbers to solve problems
If you are trying to see if something fits in a certain space, use a ruler and count the inches. If your child draws
something, ask them to draw it bigger and then measure to compare. Ask your child find out if you have enough
plates for dinner. Have him/her count the number of people who will be eating and the number of plates to figure
out how many more you need.
Explore shapes
Handling and combining different shapes helps your child understand two- and three-dimensional shapes.
You can name the shape of household items or things you see in the community and talk about features such as
edges, corners, and lines. You can use household items such as empty boxes to build or make art. Try to expose
your child to a variety of shapes and new vocabulary such as cylinders (paper towel tubes), cubes (boxes), and
spheres (a ball or orange).
