Math Games for Beginners
Preschoolers begin by counting by rote, usually without any real understanding of the meaning of the words they chant. Putting out napkins on the table for each person, counting how many cookies are needed for each teddy bear at the tea party, counting the steps as you climb the stairs...all give meaning to what we mean by two, three, four, and more.
Games also bring understanding, as they spin a number or roll a die and make the matching number of moves. We’ve selected some fun games for reinforcing counting...through play and repetition. Click the name of the games to see our full reviews.
