Establishing a “Math Exploration Station” at home is a great way to provide young children opportunities to hone critical math skills while playing!
All you need is a small table, chairs, and bookcase in which to store manipulatives and other math-centric toys like Tinker Toys, blocks, Legos, etc.
Don’t forget good ol’ paper, pencils, felt pens, and crayons for drawing and designing. We had a family friend who was an early computer scientist, and I remember going through reams of surplus wide-format dot-matrix printer paper as a young child in the early 1960’s on which I happily drew everything from complex forts to rockets to abstract free-form doodles.
The best place for early learning is in the home, and the best way is when the mind is opened through play.
