Recent research has shown that most parents and preschool teachers actually spend less time on math and science than language development. Yet, the two are just as important as literacy for early learners.
A US study conducted in 2019 titled "Observing individual children in early childhood classrooms using Optimizing Learning Opportunities for Students (OLOS)," published the same year in the journal Early Childhood Research Quarterly, revealed that preschool teachers spend a daily average of only 8 minutes on math activities and 11 minutes on science. And parents spend even less time on these subjects, with an average of only 4 minutes on math and 3 minutes on science every day.
The ChildUp Preschool Math & Logic Series is a fun and efficient way to help parents and early childhood educators teach their young children to count.
Preschool Math & Logic problem for today:
COUNTING DECKS OF CARDS
I split a deck of cards in two, and then I split each of those decks in half.
How many decks of cards are there now?
