UNDERSTANDING AND WORKING WITH NUMBERSTalking about mathematics builds language skills. Children develop literacy skills as they think about what words mean and decide which words appropriately describe certain objects and situations. Mathematics is an ideal context in which to discuss exactly what words mean. One of the best predictors of later success in school mathematics is how well children understand and tell stories. Math and literacy: a powerful pair.For daily learning activities, visit: www.inghamisd.org/ouracademics/instruction/literacy/ ...

Good nutrition gives children the energy and vitamins they need to learn and grow. Learning healthy eating habits as a child is important for a healthy future.INFANTS: need the nutrients and vitamins found only in breastmilk or infant formula. Your pediatrician may suggest introducing infant cereal and pureed vegetables and fruits after six months of age. TODDLERS: can be picky eaters, but they learn by watching others. Eat a variety of foods and your child will be more likely to try new foods, too. Offer small servings of fruits and vegetables at every meal. PRESCHOOLERS: can help plan some parts of their meals. Offer two choices—such as broccoli or carrots—and let your child decide. Make meals a family time and talk about healthy food choices.For daily learning activities visit: inghamgreatstart.org/ingham-early-learning-calendar/ ...
