As a Mother Goose Time blog ambassador, I receive the Mother Goose Time Preschool curriculum in exchange for my honest and authentic stories resulting from our personal experiences. As always, my opinions on awesome stuff for little kids are 100% my own. Keep in mind that all toddlers do things in their own time and on their own terms. What one is ready for, another might not be. Please use your best mama judgement when planning activities for your little kids.
The little guy has been really lovin’ the math stuff that comes in our Mother Goose Time curriculum kits lately, so this week it’s all about creating math workboxes for little kids.
As much as I’d love to be able to set up so-called centers, we just don’t have the space, so… This is of course the next best thing.
You can read more about our preschool workboxes here, but the short version is that I put together one box per subject and they’re of course filled with fun stuff for the little guy to do.
To give you a few examples, our handwriting drawer includes Dot to Dot for Tiny Tots and Kumon Grow to Know Tracing as well as the little guy’s Boogie Boards.
Each month, we also get a name tag and this time around I wrote the little guy’s name on it and laminated it. I thought he’d like it since he’s gotten sort of curious about writing/spelling his name. And that ended up in his handwriting drawer too.
What’s in the the little guy’s math workboxes?
Math Workboxes for Little Kids
As far as math stuff goes, it varies a little bit each month. Sometimes, we do one or two pages from Mathematical Reasoning Beginning 1. For the time-being, though. It’s in the little guy’s math drawer along with everything else.
We also get awesome count + clip cards with each of our monthly curriculum kits and those go in there as well. I’ve been laminating them as we get them and adding them along with the others. Just don’t forget to toss in some counters and clothespins. Lol…
This month, we’re using fun woodland critter counters that I found at Target, but usually we use the ones that we get from Mother Goose Time. The little guy and I are both all about fun, new preschool manipulatives every month. That’s one of the first things that we look for when we open each new curriculum kit.
Putting together workboxes for the little guy was probably one of the best decisions I’ve ever made as a homeschool mama. They definitely get a lot of love and Mother Goose Time makes it so easy to rotate activities.
