Can’t we just teach our little ones a numbers song and be done with it? Well, no. It is super important for children to develop that solid foundation of learning their numbers and to have a good experience in doing so.
When I was an early learning teacher, it was one of the most fulfilling times in my life aside from raising my own children.
Hugging a child who clearly wasn’t hugged much, cheering a child on who was used to being yelled at – now that was a sight to see.
Our early learning center was a mix of privileged kids and inner-city kids. I can tell you that BOTH types of children needed this type of encouragement.
Nothing like learning!
Above being a part of a young learner’s life, it is a privilege to see them learn. To be a part of their journey is and was an honor. Even at the foundations of learning, you quickly realize that it is crucial how and what you teach them.
Without learning about letters, kids cannot proceed in reading, or build on vocabulary. Without numbers how can a child proceed to addition, multiplication, algebra, and beyond?
It may seem simple, yet it is more important than we can imagine.
Teaching numbers was right up there with my favorite topics to teach. There are just so many activities and resources that we can use to help.
As a teacher, I didn’t have the luxury of just teaching kids to memorize numbers through song or repetition/recitation. I had to teach them to understand what numbers meant and that is the charge parents of young learners in homeschools have as well.
Early math is just as important as early reading, in my opinion. That is why reciting numbers just doesn’t cut it and practice for kids to see what numbers are and what they do is exactly where we can start in our homeschool.
I was reading an article in the scholastic online resource and it expounds on the importance of understanding numbers. Here is what Scholastic said:
Two preschoolers are watching a parade. “Look! There’s clowns!” yells Paul. “And three horses!” exclaims his friend, Nathan.
Both friends are having a great experience. But only Nathan is having a mathematical experience at the same time. Other children see, perhaps, a brown, a black, and a dappled horse. Nathan sees the same colors, but also sees a quantity-three horses. The difference is probably this: At school and at home, Nathan’s teachers and family notice and talk about numbers.”
Let’s do this for our children when it comes to learning numbers.
