Hands-on learning is the most important way that a child learns, this is especially important to early math skills. Around here, a math lesson most always needs to be done with some kinds of toys, legos or counting animals to make it click.
Using manipulatives during math time helps your preschoolers learn number sense and place value. I found a great printable from Hip Homeschool Moms that uses counting bears to play and learn numbers. All you need to do is print them out.
You can grab the free counting bear printables HERE.
