Pre school is a stage where the mind is like a sponge when the mind can absorb anything if taught in the right way. Pre School teachers have developed mathematical skills by using pre school numeracy that is designed for that sort of students. One of the basic skills of numeracy is to learn to match and sort items. Pre school children can be taught the same skills at home by using playful concepts that let the children interact and learn. But lets just face it no one has that much time and patience to deal with pre school children who have a hyper mind.

These skills are vital in further learning of various topics. The skill to manipulate numbers is possible through observing, sorting and differentiating various objects. Even toys will help teach children these numeracy skills that will further aid in development of mathematical calculation skills and other comparative problems. Sorting toys in colors and sizes is one way to develop numeracy skills. Trained pre school teachers are experts in developing children’s numeracy skills and understand the importance that it has in the future of the child. Bur apart from the teacher you too need to do your part at home or outside to develop these skills. Small things like sorting clothes at home according to color is very useful.
