Make math fun and more interesting for kids to learn. Our chick steps math activity for preschoolers will make learning numbers easier for children.
Have you ever thought that mathematics can define a person's behavior?
Mathematics plays an important role in children's lives and development as it stimulates critical and orderly thinking, preparing their brains to understand abstract concepts.
That will allow children to have a solid base to face different situations and find the appropriate solutions for each of them.
Through mathematics, children can reach the construction and solidity of values since patterns are established to guide children's lives.
That means that mathematics favors children's intelligence to function in a classroom and favors development in their daily lives.
Mathematics allows them to know in a more precise way the world that surrounds them.
The strengthening of mathematical concepts in children will be tools that will accompany them for the rest of their lives in their daily living activities. Numbers are concepts that we all know.
That is why mathematics is considered a universal language. For this reason, mathematical concepts must be developed and strengthened in the first years of life; however, this is a process that requires children to interact and learn through their own experience.
They must have the possibility of developing each of their skills independently, guided by their interest in knowing, learning, and discovering their environment, using their senses.
THEME: MATH ACTIVITY FOR PRESCHOOLERS
HOW TO DO THIS ACTIVITY?
Age: 4-6-year-old children
Goal: Through this math activity for preschoolers, children will develop knowledge of quantities through a game with a die.
- Logical thinking
- Precision in hand and finger movements (Fine and gross motor skills)
- Following patterns
- A long strip of bond paper with some circles of color dots glue on it (previously made)
- A handmade die
- Two chicks (previously made) (must be wider/taller than the strip)
Lay the bond/construction paper strip on the floor and tape the chickens of each end (top and bottom), leaving a free space for the strips to pass under the chicks.
Each child must be on each end of the strip, which will be the chicks' path. The children must take turns rolling the die and slide the strip, counting the dots indicated by the dice.

HOW TO DEVELOP THIS MATH ACTIVITY FOR PRESCHOOLERS WITH CHILDREN OF OTHER AGES?
CHANGES FOR CHILDREN UNDER 4 YEARS OLD
You can do this math activity for preschoolers with younger children. To reduce the difficulty level and make an activity suitable for children, each circle on the road will have a number.
Instead of the die, some letters with numbers will be used so that children can relate and identify the same number on the road and thus know how far the chick must walk.
In this way, children will carry out an easter activity according to their development and abilities.
CHANGES FOR CHILDREN OVER 6 YEARS OLD
You can do this math activity for preschoolers with older children. To increase the difficulty level and make the exercise more striking, you can use some cards to indicate different actions children must perform to move the chick.
An example of these could be four jumps forward and two backward.
To carry out this math activity for preschoolers, children must know numbers, notions in space, attention, and memory to perform the activity correctly.
In this way, children will carry out a math activity appropriate to their development and skills of learning.
