This month we will focus on mathematics. The children will develop number recognition and counting skills and learn the relationship between numbers and the quantity they represent. Developing number sense and quantity will prepare the children for entering Kindergarten with a strong mathematical knowledge base. The children will also focus on cognitive development as they apply strategies and draw upon past knowledge and experiences to meet goals and solve problems. Helping children use new skills they learned with prior knowledge, will assist in their learning by helping them develop a new schema about different topics and promote new learning.
Family Engagement: This month we will be learning all about the winter Olympics! Sit together with our child and watch a few of the broadcasted Olympic events on TV to help them develop new ideas and background knowledge on this infrequent opportunity that they most likely have never seen before. Talk with your child about the different events.
