### Math activities

1. 1. By: Alejandra Diaz
2. 2. 1. Matching 2. Numbers 3. Classifying 4. Comparing 5. Shape 6. Space 7. Parts/Whole 8. Ordering 9. Measurements 10. Graphing
3. 3. Method: Individual Observation Objective: To help the child match a shape of one color to another color but same shape. Materials: red circle, red square, red triangle; green circle, green square, green triangle. Resource: Charlesworth, R., and Lind. K.K. (2010). Math and science for young children (6th ed.). Clifton Park, NY: Cengage Learning Instructions: 1. Place 2 sets of shapes in front of the child. 2. Encourage the child to match the shapes in front of him. 3. As he accomplishes 2 sets, add more shapes to the sets. *Evaluation-Note if the child is able to make all three matches*
4. 4. Method: Individual Observation Objective: To relate to Rational Counting Materials: 4 mats; 4 napkins; 4 snacks; 4 kids. Resource: Charlesworth, R., and Lind. K.K. (2010). Math and science for young children (6th ed.). Clifton Park, NY: Cengage Learning  Instructions 1. Have the 4 kids sit in front of child. 2. Provide the child with materials to hand out while counting 3. Encourage the child to count as he/she gives each one their things. Repeat with all the materials. *Evaluation-Note if the child is able to rote count at least to 4*
5. 5. Method: Individual Observation Objective: To recognize and sort by colors. Materials: shapes (circle, square, triangle) in different colors (red, green, yellow, blue) 4 baskets 4 bean bags (red green yellow blue) Resource: Charlesworth, R., and Lind. K.K. (2010). Math and science for young children (6th ed.). Clifton Park, NY: Cengage Learning  Instructions: 1. Place all 4 baskets on floor with one bean bag inside each basket. 2. Place all shapes in a pile on the floor. 3. Encourage the child to sort the shapes by color according to the color that the bean bag is inside the basket. * Evaluation-Note if the child naturally groups by similarities*
6. 6. Method: Interview Objective: To understand the difference in taller and shorter. Materials: 1 football, large sheet of butcher paper, tape, 3 to 4 kids, dry erase board, dry erase marker. Resource: Charlesworth, R., and Lind. K.K. (2010). Math and science for young children (6th ed.). Clifton Park, NY: Cengage Learning  Instructions: 1. Tape the butcher paper to the wall. Measure the paper with the football : 2. Encourage the children to take turns standing against the paper. 3. Encourage them to measure each other using the football. 4. Encourage the children to write down all their measurements and compare how many footballs tall they stand. *Evaluation-Note if the child identifies the group that contains more and less*
7. 7. Method: Interview Objective: To perceive the idea of shape through touch. Materials: Large box with hole on top, different shapes (circle, squares, triangles) Resource: Charlesworth, R., and Lind. K.K. (2010). Math and science for young children (6th ed.). Clifton Park, NY: Cengage Learning  Instructions: 1. Place the box on the floor and place all the different shapes inside. 2. Encourage the child to pull out different shapes just by feeling. *Evaluation-Note to see if the child is able to group similar shapes by sense of touch*
8. 8. Method: Individual Observation Objective: To organize materials with 3-Dimensional boxes. Materials: Provide child with wooden boxes that fit inside each other. Resource: Charlesworth, R., and Lind. K.K. (2010). Math and science for young children (6th ed.). Clifton Park, NY: Cengage Learning  Instructions: 1. Encourage the child to try to see what they can build with the boxes. 2. Encourage the child to build different things with the boxes *Evaluation-Note if the child is able to arrange things in the space until they fit or until they please the eye*
9. 9. Method: Individual Observation Objective: Understand that whole things can be divided into more pieces. Materials: Interlocking floor mats Resource: Charlesworth, R., and Lind. K.K. (2010). Math and science for young children (6th ed.). Clifton Park, NY: Cengage Learning  Instructions: 1. Have 4 interlocking mats together as one. 2. Ask the child to separate the mats one at a time. 3. Continue until they are all separated as one. 4. Encourage the child to put mats together as one instead of 4. *Evaluation-Note how the child approaches the problem and how he goes about solving*
10. 10. Method: Interview Objective: To understand the idea of ordering in sequence Materials: A set of nine buckets that fit inside each other from smallest to largest. Resource: Charlesworth, R., and Lind. K.K. (2010). Math and science for young children (6th ed.). Clifton Park, NY: Cengage Learning  Instructions: 1. Place all buckets spread out on floor 2. Encourage the child to place the buckets smallest to largest 3. Encourage the child to place largest to smallest *Evaluation-Note how the child approaches the problem and whether their solution is entirely or only partially correct*
11. 11. Method: Individual Observation Objective: To understand different ways volume can be measured using sand. Materials: Sand Box, different size containers, spoons, scoops, Resource: Charlesworth, R., and Lind. K.K. (2010). Math and science for young children (6th ed.). Clifton Park, NY: Cengage Learning  Instructions: 1. Encourage the child to use different containers and see the amount of sand fits into each. 2. Ask the Child which container holds the most? Least? 3. Have the child discover all the possibilities with sand and different containers. *Evaluation-Note if they fill each from a larger container or fill a larger container using a smaller one. Or do they use the scoops to fill containers*
12. 12. Method: Interview Objective: Understanding that different things of different sizes sink and float. Materials: Tub of water, different items that float & some that sink, simple graph to put information. Resource: Charlesworth, R., and Lind. K.K. (2010). Math and science for young children (6th ed.). Clifton Park, NY: Cengage Learning  Instructions: 1. Place water in tub 2. Encourage the child to check each item and document on graph whether it sinks or floats. 3. Encourage the child to talk about his findings. 4. Encourage the child to total out how many sink & how many float. *Evaluation-How did the child record his results of his exploration*
