Academics play a great role in the development of a child. Right from the very beginning we try various methods of teaching concepts to our little ones. While for teaching toddlers and pre-schoolers, play way method and Montessori methods are the best, at the same time, we must not underestimate the role of worksheets in the teaching process.
Maths Based Board Games
Games like Snakes and ladder, monopoly, Business, Ludo and various card games like UNO, playing cards and even Tambola help kids develop an interest in numbers from the very beginning. If parents get involved while playing such games with their children, they will find numbers fun.
There are a number of other activities which I did with my daughters to make them number friendly. Once, the child develops an inclination towards numbers, they will always find it easy while learning in their later life in school.
Patterns are found everywhere around us. They bring order and regularity in our lives. You must have noticed how even a small child starts forming patterns and learns to put up random objects in a certain kind of pattern.
