How do you incorporate math into your children’s lives? We’ve been practicing our numbers since Emma was aware that numbers existed, but just recently we’ve gotten more creative to keep her interest going. Just last week we were practicing subtraction with our fingers while driving to dinner, and I decided to switch it up with her by having her count the cars going in the opposite direction. She was having a great time with it and began counting higher than ever before.
I’m sure you have your own ways of teaching early math skills to your preschoolers, and if you like to win great prizes you’ll want to enter the Zorbits Math Adventure contest and share a creative way parents can help children 3-5 years old learn any of the following math skills:
- Identifying shapes
- Recognizing colors
- Comparing amounts (more than, less than)
You can be one of 3 winners to receive a $100 gift card just for entering! Other prizes include: $200 gift card, iPad mini and an iPad if your tip gets one of the highest votes.
So go share your idea in 100 words or less by the contest deadline, which is Monday, July 29th. Inventive concepts, handmade tools, use of objects around the home are encouraged. You may include photos and other images to help illustrate your tip.
The purpose of this contest is to spread the word about the importance of early childhood learning. Best Boy Entertainment will be introducing an iOS app for children age 3 – 5 in mid-August called Zorbit’s Math Adventure. We will be posting the best ideas on creative home learning as part of the contest and also sharing ideas from moms for encouraging learning all year long. Be sure to check out Zorbits on pinterest.
