Basic math skills for preschoolers.Early learning should introduce simple mathematical concepts. By introducing children to basic skills, teachers are making the elementary education a little easier, and introducing math concepts should start when children are around three years old. Experience Early Learning Curriculum makes this each with the activities they provide every month. In the activities below the kids were counting how many piggies they had and then passed them thru the tube. And then using the tractor they would fill it up and count how many would fit. Both fine motor skills, and math concepts were learned.
