In math we are focusing on measurement comparisons, patterns, multisensory counting, numbers 1-9, sorting, and establishing daily routines.
Language and vocabulary that you can use informally with children:
about the same, bigger, coins, compare, count, data, graph, heads, hexagon, length, less, longer, match, more, none, number, pattern, repeat, rhombus, same, same length, shape, shorter, smaller, sort, square, tails, taller, total, trapezoid, triangle, volume and zero.
Some questions that you can use while working on math homework or in everyday life:-) :
How do you know if something is longer or shorter than something else?
Why or when might we need to know how to compare lengths of objects?
Which container do you think holds more? Why?
What do you notice about the pattern?
What should we add next to continue the pattern? How do you know?
How do you make sure you count correctly whatever you are counting? Why is it important to count these correctly?
How else could we show 4?
How many sides does this shape have? Can you find another shape with the same number of sides?
How could you describe your shape to someone who can't see it or feel it?
Is there more than one way that we can sort these coins?
