Item description for Get Ready for Math!: Making Child Care Work for You (Redleaf Guides for Parents) by Sally Moomaw...
While they may not know it, young children do math every day-from dividing up toys to rolling dice on a board game. So much of their earliest learning can be traced to play, and it's no different with math.
Written specifically for parents of children in child care, Get Ready for Math! helps parents partner with their child care provider to build important emerging math skills in their child.
The fourth in the groundbreaking Redleaf Guides for Parents series, this handy resource provides parents with an in-depth look at how young children explore early math concepts-often unknowingly-in their everyday play at home and in child care, and gives parents developmentally appropriate activities to properly nurture those skills in their children in the years before they enter kindergarten.
For anyone struggling to make math a bigger part of their child's life, Get Ready for Math! is one book parents-and their children-can count on.
