Helping Your Four-Year-Old Learn to Love Math

It's easy for kids — and parents! — to see math as a school activity. We often think it's just about counting or adding or learning math facts. But by exploring the interesting ways math shapes the world around us, we can help our children begin to think like mathematicians and learn to love math.

Once you start looking for patterns, you will start to find them everywhere. There are patterns in colors, shapes, sounds, dances and even daily routines! Learning patterns is a skill that translates directly into algebraic thinking, so by exploring these ideas now, you will be setting the stage for bigger math ideas later.
