arrow friend and local mama, karen gerow, led a workshop for arrow parents on saturday in the seedlings classroom. entitled, math + play, karen shared with us how to lay an early foundation for math through play. train sets, simple blocks, and old school games geared toward preschoolers (chutes and ladders) prime their brains for math learning through developing spatial skills, in addition to the obvious like getting them used to counting and learning numbers.
arrow is such a good place for this sort of workshop because, while the adults were in the workshop, the children played in the adjacent room with arrow caregivers.
then, it was time to invite the little ones in to play at the stations that karen had set up...a train table, with blocks, or with chutes & ladders!
thank you to karen, and to all the families that participated in the workshop!
