On the next page you will find all kinds of fun math activities, to introduce your toddlers to Basic math concepts. Here is a free preschool math activity with base 10 blocks.
Multisensory math activities at this age are important. Paper and pencil do not reflect a young child's understanding of mathematics. Their fine motor skills need to be developed. Just because they can work the pencil doesn't mean they don't understand basic math concepts. Playing with blocks makes addition, subtraction and other math concepts visually obvious.
Here are some games you can play with macaroni.
My math with playing cards page shows you some games you can play if you have a deck of cards laying around, which most people do. No need to start right out with expensive base ten blocks but eventually you should see they will be more than worth the investment and they last a lifetime if you take reasonable care of them.
In Module Two you get theory on how to use your base ten blocks. When you enter here, you see theory in practice, unrehearsed, with actual students having fun playing with manipulatives and learning math. I have a free book on subtraction with base 10 blocks that many people like, so far I have given away over 1,000 copies of it.
If you like that book you'll love this one. My first book designed as a bedtime story the completely cool curious counter's compendium.
Get the Curious Counters Compendium. With this book and the resources on this webpage your preschooler will have a serious Headstart in mathematics. Best of all, they'll have fun!
