Developing early numeracy skill

Developing early numeracy skill

Children begin to develop numeracy skills from a very early age. You can introduce maths skills and ideas into everyday activities with your child to help build early numeracy.Language skills and numeracy skills go hand in hand.Talking with your child about maths concepts in your everyday activities will help her understand how and why maths is useful. For example, you can point out:
• big and small (size)
• high and low (height)
• heavy and light (weight)
• fast and slow (speed)
• close and far (distance)
• many and few (amount)
• first, second and last (order)
• morning, afternoon and night (time)
