way1 (1,1,1,1,1,1,1) way 2(1,1,1,1,1,2) way 3(1,1,1,2,2) way 4( 1,2,2,2)
children need to know how to count to do the task above, they must know what is cardinal number and they could to group in two too.
Children need to be given isolated object as well as concrete materials to classify, match and sort in order to aquire basic math skills.
How do we help children to learn?
by teacher modeling and scaffolding children with questions and by providing variation and lastly by Concrete Pictorial Abstract (CPA) approach.
