Ideas for Supporting Young Children’s Math Skills During Coronavirus and Beyond
With many schools and childcare centers closed, there is a critical need for learn-at-home materials focused around early math. DREME’s At-Home Early Math Learning Kit for Families offers practical, research-based strategies that busy families can use to support their young children’s early math learning—at home, right now, for free, and without special materials. Available also in Spanish, these fun and easy ideas are geared toward children from birth through age 8 and can help families use their time together to explore math in everyday home routines.
Included in this kit are:
- Reading tips for finding and talking about math in picture books.
- Recipes that inspire math conversations in the kitchen.
- Math snacks—quick and easy ideas for finding and talking about math in everyday family routines, such as mealtime and clean-up.
- Card games that allow children to practice skills like adding and comparing numbers.

Dear CDC Parents:
We hope you and your family are doing well. The teachers have been in contact with many of you in different ways (zoom, email, text) so we encourage you to contact your child's teacher (see below) and/or continue this "keeping in touch" with them.
Below you will find additional resources that you can use with older children as well. They are from the Department of Education website and are being suggested to the parents.
And again, if you need anything, please do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stay healthy, Katarina
