GeoBoards & Pattern Blocks

We do not use worksheets or printables to teach at MCP.  We have many manipulatives in our room to introduce, practice and master many concepts.  We tell the children there are shapes, numbers, letters and words everywhere.  We talk about shapes, numbers. letters and words during their center time, group time and during class.

We have geoboards and pattern blocks in our Discovery Center.  With a geoboard and rubber bands, your child can create geometric shapes, strengthen their fine motor skills and even create some beautiful art.
Pattern blocks are colorful wooden blocks that your child can either match a pattern on a template or create a pattern.  This is how we do math!

How can you help your child develop their math skills? 

You can help your child with their math skills everyday because shapes and numbers are everywhere!
