SC Math Standards: Geometry

As children build and create with shapes, they develop a deeper understanding of the mathematical principals of geometry.Children discover that shapes have lines and angels. They see how 2 dimensional objects have width and height, and 3 dimensional objects have width, height, and depth. Learning the mathematical terms and calculating numbers will come much later, but understanding how an object looks and feels will establish a mental picture. This mental picture will prove to be very important in the future as children are introduced to more abstract concepts because they have developed real-world connections.

Learning at Home: Multisensory Spelling

Many times, children have trouble identifying the separate letter sounds or phonemes in words. Fingerspelling is a handy multisensory strategy to help children learn how to spell.  They learn to pull apart words into separate sounds (segmenting) and to associate a letter’s sound with the letter’s written form.
