"My kids love School Books 4 Kids. They have everything you need. They are the best! We highly recommend them to anyone looking for educational books for their little ones" Karibatau - NSW - 18th June 2020
Time for Preschool Shapes and Measurement introduces the child to shapes and concepts of position and comparison. It links shapes to pictures the child can recognise. Each page has a clear outline of what the child is to do with the task. The visual cues and shapes are used to foster an independence in the child who at this stage is unable to read but recognises pictures.
Some of the pre-reading activities introduced to help the child recognise shapes and objects that are the same, things that belong and the one that is different. It encourages the child to look at the page from top to bottom, then as a whole to see likeness and differences from those pictures that are familiar to him or her.
Shapes are introduced with pictures that are highlighted in the instructions with its name. This links the concepts of shapes and objects to the pictures which is an introductory skill used in developing a foundation in mathematics.
The purpose of this pre mathematics book is as a valuable resource and when used in the correct manner to help facilitate early maths skills, the child will find it enjoyable.
Parents and preschool teachers will see it as an ideal extension of the preschool program.
Message to Parents
Preschool will help your child learn social skills associated with being part of a group outside the home.
However, it is parents and home environment that nurtures a child from birth, establishes values, attitudes to learning, the child will be successful at school and want to achieve in such a positive environment. As a parent, you should assist the child with reading and discussing instructions, encourage the child to do the work.
With encouragement and success comes confidence to acquire more mathematics skills and knowledge..
