Counting Method / June 6, 2018 / Victoria Muller
Playing math games with children can be a fun, developmentally appropriate way to spark understanding of big mathematical ideas. Math games also support children’s mathematical habits of mind—and key school readiness skills, such as problem solving, puzzling, and perseverance. When we watch and listen to how children play math games, we learn a lot about the mathematics they already know and what they’re ready to learn. Often ask children to count a line of objects, but circular and scattered arrangements are harder to count one by one! These games support children’s ability to subitize—that is, to immediately see how many without counting, a key factor relating to young children’s math ability.
The Infant Potty Training Method. Most used potty training method in underdeveloped nations around the world and probably the least used potty training method in North America. It basically involves holding the infant over a potty to catch the eliminations. It basically works by having the mom learn the infant's rhythms and infant learns to recognize physical sensations that precede elimination. This is very effective when the disposable diaper use is minimal or nonexistent. Infants can learn to signal when they need to relieve themselves.
