Numbers Are Always Fun at Crayon Box Preschool's Day Care Centers November 24, 2015

Flushing, Queens
Numbers Are Always Fun at Crayon Box Preschool's Day Care Centers , Queens, New York

Crayon Box Preschool in Flushing, NY, builds learning around the idea that every lesson should be fun and applied to real life experiences. This is a stress-free childcare setting that prepares kids for elementary school and beyond. 

As hard as teachers at Crayon Box Preschool work to integrate everyday experiences with learning opportunities, there's still more to be done at home. Parents can help kids learn how use numbers through everyday activities. This provides critical reinforcement for lessons learned at preschool and will enable your child to thrive.

Here are some easy activities that will help your child learn numbers:

  • Count In The Car: If you have a road trip or even a long drive coming up, use this as an opportunity to entertain and educate your child. Have them count the number of cars they see in a particular color. It's basically a numbers version of "I Spy," and is great counting practice. When they can't count past a certain number, start over. 
  • Measure Things: If you're looking to see if a piece of furniture will fit within a space in your house or how big a piece of art will be on your wall, let your child help. Make it a fun activity that uses your child's hands as a measuring tool. Use their hands to see how big an item is, and determine where and how it will fit within a space. 
  • Cook Together: While making a meal, let your child help. Once again, they can help you measure out quantities of an item. If you aren't using measuring cups, tell them you need two handfuls of something, and let them count out the correct amount. Cooking can also offer a fun science lesson. 

Sometimes we forget that numbers are part of everyday life. Let your child see how the numbers they learn about at Crayon Box Preschool translate in the real world. Encourage learning and exploration by creating lessons at home. Call (718) 888-9341 to create even more learning opportunities through a preschool program.
