Counting Method / June 6, 2018 / Norah Myles
Teachers and parents like to use board games to teach skills that range from fair play to counting. When it comes to improving early number skills, a new report by Boston College and Carnegie Mellon University researchers finds that how children count is what really counts. Earlier studies have pointed to the benefits to young children of playing games that require counting. The new study suggests the simple act of playing a number game may not yield the benefits earlier studies have detailed. What matters is how children count while they play.
There are many games that are fun but not all of them are education. Children love to play games and those that are educational can be somewhat boring and uninteresting. This is changing as people are finding out that games can really help children to learn different concepts. Kindergarten games especially and others geared towards specific ages can assist a child in learning the concepts that they need to learn for their ages and can even help a person get ahead.
