Everyday Words are Math Words
What do empty, full, same, and different have in common? They are all concepts you can teach using math talk. Learn how to teach your child to name math concepts they encounter in their play and as they explore the world. Much of what children experience in their daily activities, like drinking a glass of juice or spilling a glass of milk, can be linked to higher level math ideas of full and empty. Turn spilt milk into a math experience. Repeating the words to accompany their experiences prepares children for success in math at school and in life.
