Energize Math Time with Math Poems and Rhymes

Who doesn't love some upbeat rhymes? Try adding math poems and rhymes to energize your child (and yourself). Starting with a poem, rhyme, or song can energize and engage your child when beginning a preschool math activity.

We all want our children to succeed so let's encourage the mind set that "math is fun". Helping foster this healthy attitude toward math can help alleviate fears or apprehensions about math later on.

Whether clapping their hands or stomping their feet, children love the rhythm that comes with poems. Did I mention, rhyming patterns themselves are an important component when learning to read? Rhyming helps develop word family comprehension...but we'll save that for another time. 

The poems that I'm sharing with you are very simple, easy to learn and your child will be able to perform them with a little practice and repetition. So, hop out of your chair, and have some fun...wiggle, clap and stomp, engage your whole body to tell your brain "Math is Fun!"
