Numeracy ~ Applying Math Concepts to Real-life 

Rising grades 1 to 3, Saturdays, 11am, June 24th-August 17th 

 

What is numeracy?

It's the ability to use mathematics in everyday life.

Numeracy involves skills that aren’t always taught in the classroom – the ability to use numbers and solve problems in real life. It means having the confidence and skill to use numbers and mathematical approaches in all aspects of life. Numeracy is as important as literacy. In fact, it's sometimes called ‘mathematical literacy’. National Numeracy, for Everyone, for Life

Why early math is just as important as early reading.... and what we can do about it!

The University of Chicago and countless other universities have studied the predictive power of numeracy on school readiness in achievement. The problem is that we often identify and support early reading issues in schools and out of school...but not mathematical thinking. Great Schools.org published this exceptional article on the value of intervening and supporting early math skills. Click here.

Early numeracy can be developed through manipulatives and games. Children learn and remember most when experiences are fun, involve movement and creative thinking.
