It is so amazing how a preschooler painting at the art easel is fulfilling the states Early Learning Standards for math–specifically Algebra. When the child paints a simple flower and repeats the color scheme–yellow, red, yellow, red–they are repeating a simple AB pattern of concrete objects. Predicting what comes next in the AB pattern is Algebra….and we thought they were just making a pretty picture for mom.
We strive to create fun and informative content that will help young children learn and grow. However, it's important to keep in mind that all activities should be performed under the supervision of an adult. The Adventurous Child website is intended to serve as a reference and guidance for educational activities, and it is ultimately the responsibility of the parent, guardian, and/or educator to determine the appropriateness of the activity for their child’s age and maturity level.
