3K Numbers

Students will be introduced to various aspects of numbers and number readiness to lay the foundation for future success in math.  This includes hand-on opportunities for exploring spatial relationships, sorting and sequencing and recognizing colors and shapes.  The children will learn to recognize numbers as well as matching, tracing and listening skills.  Students are provided with opportunities to succeed by the implementation of multiple learning strategies and incorporating circle time, small groups, and individual instruction as well as learning centers.  Learning games, finger plays and songs involving math concepts are used daily to motivate the children and make learning enjoyable and fun.
