Math Week!

To many adults, the word Math and Play have absolutely nothing to do with each other. For many of us, math was a torture, something we had to do, and something we didn't understand and couldn't do. Play on the other hand is something we love. Young children are learning math all the time through a wide variety of play experiences. From the time they are born, babies are surrounded by sense impression. Shapes in particular are of immediate importance: babies react instinctively to the arrangement of shapes which make up the human face. At the Academy children have many opportunities to enjoy and learn Math through Play.

         We are putting patterns together with
           different shapes, sizes, and colors.
We love counting with the peg boards!
We are counting with colored bears!
How many bears do you need?
I like putting the green bears on mine!
Pete the Cat and his four groovy buttons!
It's so fun to sort and count the pom pom's!
How fast can you count them?
