Mathematical concepts and skills begin to develop in prekindergarten. Children demonstrate a natural interest in counting, sorting, building shapes, finding patterns, measuring, and estimating. They experience math through playing with manipulatives, problem solving and daily experiences.
The McGraw-Hill prekindergarten math program (My Math) has been designed as a foundation for the Common Core State Standards. Mathematical practices are embedded throughout the program. Children develop a conceptual understanding of math and mathematical literacy through a hands on modeling approach, problem solving and higher order thinking activities.
My Math teaches children:
Sorting and classifying
Number recognition and concepts
Beginning addition and subtraction
