Welcome to our new Math Talks series, where we will be looking at ways to build critical thinking and math skills tailored specifically for our little learners!

As a former kindergarten teacher and a mother of two, I am thrilled to share with you this exciting new blog series aimed at preschoolers, kindergartners, and first graders.

Math talks are not just about numbers and counting; they’re about fostering a love for learning, sparking curiosity, and nurturing critical thinking skills from a young age.


Through this series, we will explore monthly math talks designed to engage young minds.

More specifically, we will cover the concepts, benefits, and practical tips for seamlessly incorporating math talks into daily routines, whether in the classroom or at home.

Furthermore, you can keep your eyes out for free math talks throughout the series.

Why Math Talks

Why focus on math talks? Because they are magical moments where children’s innate curiosity meets structured learning.

Whether it’s observing and counting colorful objects, exploring shapes, or making predictions, math talks offer endless opportunities for exploration and discovery.

And as someone who has spent years in the classroom and at home with little ones, I have witnessed firsthand the profound impact these moments can have on a child’s development.

This series isn’t just about theory; it’s about real-world application.

I’ll draw upon my experiences in the classroom and as a parent to provide practical insights and strategies for making math talks a seamless part of your daily routine.

From creating engaging activities to fostering a supportive learning environment, we’ll explore how to make math talks both educational and enjoyable for our little learners.
