Music & Math
Learning about the building blocks of math—such as size, measurement, pattern recognition, and counting by rote—starts early. Here are some suggestions for incorporating math into your day today!
Give your child a medium-sized container like a cloth bin, a basket, or even an empty diaper box. Provide toys or toddler-safe objects for him to put in and then dump out of the container (over and over again). This kind of play allows your child to explore the basic math concepts of size, measurement, and capacity.
Also, we've included a link below to a free resource from Kindermusik. This Kindermusik e-book--Music and…Math—includes musical activities to do together as a family. Have fun being together and learning at the same time!
