Summer number sense explores more than counting and learning numbers. Your bilingual preschoolers can engage in different activities to learn to count.
Of course, there are many ways to apply learning number sense. You can easily use a digital tool or flashcards. However, young bilingual learners benefit from using various tools like manipulatives and games.
Summer bilingual number activities include various ways that you can practice math. Especially when your kids get bored during the summer, use that time to learn something new.
Of course, there are other fun activities in the sun. For example, you could suggest exercise like swimming, playing sports, or visiting a local park.
But when you have rainy or indoor days, take a moment to practice fun bilingual number activities.
Counting bilingual activities can consist of many different ways to learn numbers. For example, you might use simple counters like noodles, toys, socks, or manipulatives.
However, counting occurs during the daily lives of young children. From the moment they start the day until they go to bed, they encounter counting.
Developing different ways to keep them engaged while learning to count can be challenging. So, encourage to use those manipulatives or interactive activities to learn counting with themes.
Learning to tell time is a valuable skill for any young learner, especially for bilingual learners. Of course, knowing the time is essential to get to places on time like school.
Also, learning how to tell time encourages young learners about differences in the day and night. As young children become more aware of time, seasons, and progression of a day, they are more apt to relate time with changes.
That is why learning about the seasons and time are great lessons to begin talking about the changes in a young child’s life.
Groundhog day is an excellent opportunity to introduce science concepts. Of course, there’s fun in predicting whether the groundhog will see his shadow or not.
Consider that this science lesson contains so much information: shadows, light/dark, spring/winter, and habitats. That is, learning about groundhog can give you so many opportunities to teach besides math concepts.
In this instance, shadows are a way to investigate measurements and how shadows form.
