Maths and Cognition

This area of development encourages children to develop early maths skills in addition to critical thinking and reasoning. Mathematics is one of the day to day real life experiences that enable us to solve our problems. At Elite Kids day care and kindergarten Montessori we give children practical mathematical activities before they are able to understand the abstract mathematics. We develop mathematical concepts through play using a range of objects.

Activities

  • Learn basic shapes, like circles and squares
  • Playing interactive games to identify number sequences.
  • Cutting numbers out of magazines, gluing them on poster paper to make a collage, then asking the children to talk about the numbers they found.
  • Spinning a spinner and saying the number it stops on, then counting out coins and blocks to create a set of that number.
