Early Math

Mason has just started taking a real interest in math. We will give him simple addition and subtraction problems (10 is the max) and he can figure it out on his fingers. The first couple of times we had to remind him what plus/minus meant and help him realize that he could use both hands, but now he usually is able to figure out the answers himself.

We've also started helping Audrey with some basic math just by having her count everything and working with tangible objects (food on her plate, toys, etc) to do very basic arithmetic.

    It's always good to go with what they show an interest in.
