I push in to a Pre k for math once a week. I'd like to do something hands on fun my first week with them. Any ideas would be appreciated as I am usually a 3-5 grade teacher. TIA

Sorting and classifying

Start with a collection of large items and work on the floor with hoops to sort them - all the cars together, all the books together , all the crayons together etc. You could pass a mystery bag around and each child takes one item, names it and puts it in the appropriate hoop.

Then have collections of smaller items for them to sort in pairs or threes - more than 3 makes it hard to wait your turn. You circulate as they work.

Once they finish have them tell you what they did Ď I put all the x togetherí etc


Back in the group make a large ven diagram on the floor with ribbon or string,. Use the children to make sets- a set of girls/ boys/ children who wear glasses/ children wearing ribbons in the hair/ brown shoes etc. Use relevant vocabulary,
A set of girls
Can x go in the set? Yes, because sheís a girl / no because heís not a girl etc.

Doesnít sound Wow but children love it.

Hand clapping games are good too- make a pattern
