My students need counting books and games because counting and number recognition are the building blocks of financial literacy.
My school is a Title I school with ninety-nine percent of students qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch. I am teacher of students with autism who are amazing! Each is only three or four years old, but is brilliant in his or her own right. Some are very vocal and receive time in the general education classroom.
One has gone from saying three words at the beginning of last school year to speaking in complete sentences.
Others are learning to use the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) to express their needs. I love the way my students work together in play center. I am proud of the way they have welcomed new students into our class!
As a preschool teacher, it is my responsibility to develop early math skills. Some of the major math concepts I focus on are counting and number recognition. These are the building blocks of financial literacy. A student has to be able to identify numbers before they can compare and understand their value.
During the last two school years, my students and I have counted to the 100th day of school.
This is a great way to practice counting aloud and introduce counting by 10s. The Literature-Based Counting Center relates to the Dr. Seuss book Ten Apples on Top and includes a set of 45 wooden apples to count. I think this center will be a great way to reinforce counting skills practiced during morning meeting.
Additionally, I am requesting a set of play money for my students to use with their toy cash register. This will be another way to develop number recognition and practice skip counting while introducing the concept of money in a developmentally appropriate way.
