UKG’s Adventure into Numbers: Bigger and Smaller Groups
At Vidhya Peetham i-School, we believe in making learning a hands-on experience, especially when it comes to foundational math concepts through kindergarten math activities. Our UKG children recently dived into the world of numbers by exploring bigger and smaller groups of objects, setting the stage for understanding larger numbers.
Purpose of kindergarten math activities:
The aim was simple yet significant: to reinforce the concept of quantity by comparing different groups. This activity was not just about counting; it was about visualizing and understanding the ‘more’ and ‘less’ in a tangible way.
The Vegetable Count: A Journey of Discovery
Our little mathematicians brought from home a colorful array of vegetables—carrots, radishes, brinjals, beetroots, cabbages, tomatoes, potatoes, coconuts, bitter gourds, and lady’s fingers. The classroom buzzed with excitement as they laid out six pairs of rectangular boxes on the floor, each filled with varying quantities of a single type of vegetable.
Counting, Comparing, and Learning
One by one, the children chose their box pairs and began the task of counting. They meticulously counted the vegetables in each box, writing the numbers on the floor beside them. The moment of truth came when they had to determine which box held the larger group. With great enthusiasm, they placed a hula hoop around the box with the most vegetables, visually marking the ‘bigger’ group.
Outcomes: A Step Forward in Mathematical Thinking
The activity was a resounding success. Not only did the children enjoy the process, but they also sharpened their counting skills and grasped the concept of comparing quantities. It was a joy to see them apply their learning in such an engaging way, a testament to the innovative teaching methods we employ at one of the best CBSE schools in Salem.
