Numeral identification and counting!
It was an interesting numeracy class today as kids counted and identified numbers 1 to 4. This was in order to set a foundation for more complex concepts in mathematics as they keep learning. Understanding the significance of numerals will directly contribute to a child’s success in the classroom. It’s no longer about rote memorization but identification of numbers while counting.
Letters are building blocks for literacy so it’s important for them to recognize, name and practice the letters. Kids reviewed letter /p/ today by doing some tracing.
To stimulate the sense of smell, children were encouraged to sniff the air and asked to describe what they are smelling. Items included flowers, spices, and other odors. This is an important aspect of overall development in kids.
