Remember, persistence is one of
the keys to being successful in anything you do and in your teaching. 
Thomas Edison failed 9000 times with the light
bulb said “be patient” and “persistence is the key;”
  
Colonial Sanders shared his thoughts “never quit” and
“be positive;”  and Ray Kroc of McDonald’s stated “never give up!” 

Perseverances are now our victories over struggles and challenges in our lives for us to become stronger. Congratulations on the teachers who have endured
throughout the years!!!

 

 

 

Thoughts about Math for Children under 5

It seems many of you have written and enjoyed the Math for Children Under Five games. Here are some more ideas. Thank you for your
comments! 

Through mathematics, children learn to understand their world in terms of numbers and shapes. They learn to reason, to connect ideas, and to think logically. Every day as children play they are using mathematics
without even realizing it. Children learn best when they find answers for themselves and in their own way.

Try these games:
Sitting On A Number – Double set of numbers 1-10 are made. One set of numbers is handed out
to ten children who sit on that number. (Make sure they are mixed up.)  The child selected has his/her back turned and selects a number from the second set. The child turns around and trys to
guess where the number is located and has three quesses. If the child wins, the child with that number has the next opportunity to guess. 

How Many Body Parts – Ask the the children tell how you how many body parts they have like “How many
noses in the room?”
 “How many eyes, or ears, or chins, or fingers or toes are in the room counting the teacher?”

Remember, very young children (age’s two to five) need activities to challenge
their minds.
