If you’d like to build your preschooler’s math skills, make sure that you don’t forget about helping them understand order/compare/measure.
WHY PRESCHOOLERS SHOULD UNDERSTAND ORDER/COMPARE/MEASURE
Understanding order, compare, and measure is an important step in building your preschooler’s reasoning skills. Realizing that same types of objects can come in all shapes and sizes helps your preschooler gain a better understanding of important math concepts, like bigger and smaller, or heavier and lighter. Your preschooler will need to understand these concepts in order to further expand their math skills and begin to understand number order. Comparing objects is a first step in understanding how to use a ruler to measure items using units of measurement.
