Building a Number Sense in PreK3
Welcome to Ms. Mariah's PreK3 class where she maximizes creativity with our curriculum especially when it comes to math! At Gifted, we strive to prepare students for Kindergarten and Ms. Mariah always find enjoyable hands on ways for her students to understand what she's teaching them. In this math activity, she's building their number sense by helping them relate numerals with counting objects. This helps them understand that the number 3 is a quantity. A strong number sense is very important for students to build on in elementary school to be effective in math.
“Number sense is a fancy way of saying understanding numbers and what numbers are all about.”
