Math is all around us! Our Discovery Math Preschool enrichment class is designed to increase children's interest and knowledge of math, building on what young children already know and are capable of doing. The curriculum will emphasize the children's role as an active learner. Through hands on experiences with individual and group activities, children will explore math academic areas.
Through their math experiences children will meet the math standards of the NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children) and the Illinois Department of Education Early Learning and Development Standards. The Everyday Math program will be used to implement lesson plans and activities.
The children will experience mathematical thinking as part of their everyday lives. Number activities, including counting and number recognition, simple methods for calculating sums and differences, estimating and comparing, graphing to predict and find solutions to developmentally appropriate math questions will engage the children using their natural problem solving skills.
