Toys and Games/Math Readiness

This center includes manipulatives, puzzles, matching games and games with rules that children can play at a table or on the floor. These materials offer children a quiet activity that they can do alone, with a friend, teacher or in a small group. Children strengthen all areas of their development as they play with toys and games. This area helps teach fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination skills, and math skills such as counting, sorting, sequencing, matching and number sense. Some of the activities available in this center are: puzzles, nesting boxes, felt boards, legos, sewing cards, stringing beads, math manipulatives, folder games, math readiness games, dominoes, matching games as well as card and board games.
