Pre-K Math Center

A math center helps children practice important early math skills. To create an engaging and educational preschool math center, you can include materials and activities that encourage children to explore counting, sorting, patterns, shapes, and number recognition

This shelf houses both the math and literacy center materials. The rolled beige mats on the top right of the shelf are used for working with materials on the floor.

A math center is a great way to introduce young children to early math concepts. Set up an interactive area where children can learn math with hands-on materials. Make the center engaging for little learners by adding fun math games and interactive activities.

The goal of a math center to encourage children to explore math at their own pace. Children grasp mathematical concepts better when they can manipulate objects and tools. Math centers help develop critical thinking, problem-solving, and fine motor skills.

Rotate activities! Keep the math center fresh and interesting to children by rotating activities and materials. Change math activities to fit your thematic unit studies or the current season. Change activities as children progress to harder skills. Add activities that reinforce what you’ve taught during small group and circle time lessons.
