Inspired by the book “Math from Three to Seven” by Alexander Zvonkin, my wife and I decided to start a math circle for our 4-year-old daughter. We invited 5 of her friends from preschool to meet at our house once a week for an hour. All 5 said yes!
We have two main goals:
1) Show the kids that math is fun
2) Challenge the kids to solve problems different from problems they’ve never seen before
We plan to start each circle with a math-themed picture or chapter book and work through two or three math activities each week. Some activities will be individual, others will be done in small or larger groups.
