Back to Early Math Symposium June 2024

Cook, Play, Sing, Create Family Math Fun with Little Ones / ¡Cocina, juega, canta, crea! Diversión con los más pequeños y Matemáticas en familia

It is crucial that we provide families with opportunities for fun, positive learning experiences that promote early math skills. That’s why PBS SoCal developed Family Math - a bilingual toolkit of interactive workshops, hands-on activities, games, songs, and videos for families of children 2 to 5. By building on what families are already doing, Family Math helps families uncover the joy of math in everyday experiences. This session aims to share effective practices and resources to support families’ awareness of math in everyday contexts and their development of positive math attitudes and confidence. Come play, sing, create, and even cook with us as we bring math learning to life.

Es por eso que PBS SoCal desarrolló Matemáticas en familia, una serie de herramientas bilingües de talleres interactivos, actividades prácticas, juegos, canciones y videos para familias de niños de 2 a 5 años. Matemáticas en familia ayuda a las familias a descubrir la alegría de las matemáticas en las experiencias cotidianas. Esta sesión tiene como objetivo compartir recursos efectivos para apoyar la conciencia de las familias sobre las matemáticas en contextos cotidianos y su desarrollo de la positividad y confianza en las matemáticas. Ven a jugar, cantar, crear e incluso cocinar con nosotros mientras animamos el aprendizaje de las matemáticas.
