Teaching equations to kindergarten children needs to be a hands on activity using tangible resources where children can explore, experiment and self correct. At this age, printed workbooks and worksheets should be avoided and manipulative materials used instead. So bring out all the counters, figurines, shapes and blocks you can find because this is the way in which this age group of children learn best. A simple game with a dice and counters can teach equations. Throw the dice and put out the required number of counters. Throw again and do the same.
Then physically put all of the counters together to show one group and count them again (addition). Play a magnetic fish game with cardboard fish with a paperclip and a piece of dowel and string with a magnet on the end as a fishing rod. Count the fish in the pond. When one gets caught (subtraction) how many are left? Division can be as simple as a sharing exercise. "There are 4 people here and I have 8 counters. Let's see how many we will get each". Use play dough or counters or blocks to make 'groups of items'. Talk about what happens when you put groups together (multiplication). Make the terminology you use simple. This age group need simple language instead of mathematical terms. These activities are laying the foundations for further learning.
Remember that this age group also needs lots of counting, sorting, grouping, patterning, classifying and ordering activities. This will help in their mathematical understanding if they have been given the opportunity to explore all of these concepts. Simple activities like sorting buttons, putting away the shopping, threading colored straws, collecting and sorting things from the garden and lining books in the shelf from tallest to shortest are all ways in which these concepts can be reinforced at home.
Don't underestimate the impact of Singing games like '5 little ducks went out one day' and '5 speckled frogs sitting on a speckled log' in the teaching of these concepts to young children. Math concepts can be part of a large variety of everyday children's learning experiences. When the experience is relevant to them, they are more likely to retain the information and optimum learning takes place. There are also many software programs or online Math sites that can help your preschooler learn the basics of Math in a fun and visual way.
Math can be lots of fun and learning through play is relevant and meaningful for this age group.
