Fun with Math in Kindergarten

Using Math in Focus, we are developing concepts of same and different.  Each of us took a turn building a tower, the rest were encouraged to build the same tower.  It is a hands-on way to practice same and different.

We also practice counting the cubes in our tower to enhance one-to-one correspondence.  When building the towers we also reviewed saying our colours.  Active participation helps us develop concrete and abstract concepts.
