· Teaching kindergarten and preschool math concepts require much more than handing children math workbooks or worksheets.
· Children begin to understand symbols and abstract concepts only after experiencing the ideas on a concrete level.
· Children need to have math experiences that incorporate their senses, that require them to experiment and make observations, and that allow them time to investigate a topic further.
· Children learning kindergarten and preschool math need to grasp concepts at their own rate. They frequently return to former tasks to try to solve them in new ways and start to record their work with pictures.
