Reggio Inspired: Math

Yet another peek into Rosa Parks Preschool:

 Canvas board number frieze with real objects showing quantity.  And, of course, the glitter!
 I love these little silver buckets of counting objects.
Notice the tubes above with the number labels? And all these cool rocks.  Super uber cool.
 A super idea!  Put an arrival question in a picture frame.
Number wood chips.   Simply put on a number sticker and paint on the wood.  When dry, remove the  sticker.  Easy peasy.
Here is the great math practice found in setting the table (counting, position, and one-to-one correspondence to name a few).

Finally, counting sticks.

      It’s a double leveled lazy susan. I think I got it at a department store in the kitchen section. It’s so handy!


  1. […] Fair Dust Teaching  provides pictures of different loose parts that were used by a reggio emailia classroom. It is great to look at it and include similar materials to create math stations that allow children to freely explore to choose their own counter to represent one-to-one correspondent. You can take the students to a walk so they can pick their own loose parts. As well as encourage parent to provide culturally relevant materials to class to use as counters to built home-school connection. […]
