This is the question we mothers are always trying to answer.
It's good that children enquire questions: that's the best way to LEARN. All children have two wonderful resources for learning -- imagination and curiosity. As a parent, you can awaken your children to the joy of learning by encouraging theirimagination and curiosity.
'HELPING Your Baby LEARN math' is one in a series of books on different education messages intended to help you make the most of your Baby's natural curiosity. Teaching and learning are not mysteries that can only happen in school. They also|too} happen when mothers and children do simple things together.
For instance, you and your Baby can: sort socks on laundry day
-- sorting is a major function in math and science; cook a meal together -- cooking involves not only math and science but good health as well; tell and understand each other stories -- storytelling is the basis for reading and writing (and a story about the past is also|too} history); or play a game of hopscotch together -- playing physical amusements will help your Baby LEARN to count and start on a road to lifelong fitness.
By doing things together, you will show that learning is fun and important. You will be encouraging your Baby to study, LEARN, and stay in school.
This book will present you a abbreviated rundown on facts, but the biggest part of the book is made up of simple, fun Activities for you and your Baby to do together. Your Baby may even beg you to do their situation.
"The first teachers are the mothers, both by example and conversation. But don't conceive of it as teaching. conceive of it as fun."
So, let's get started. I invite you to find an activity in this book and try it.
