如何教幼儿认识数字

By: 高美麗 数学是人们要学习的一门重要学科,所以家长都非常重视幼儿学习数学。从年龄还小,家长就开始教幼儿数数、计算。可是,即使幼儿能背这些数字,他们不一定能认识数字更别说理解每个数字的含义了。 法国哲学家、物理学家和数学家Pascal说过:“人类的心智,天生就是具有数学性的,而数学的知识和进步都是来自正确的观察。” 幼儿还处在感官学习的阶段,丰富的感官体验从何而来?这些不是靠看动画片,也不是靠纸上操练获得的,而是来源于对环境的感受和观察。眼睛看到,手摸得到,耳朵听到,多感官的体验,丰富着大脑神经元。 那如何教幼儿认识数字呢? 最简单的方法就给他们听一些数字歌。 当收拾玩具时,叫他们边数一数,边收拾东西。 在家时,可以叫他们数一数家里的东西,比如:房间里有几个枕头,几把椅子等等。 让他们按家长说的数字来画一些东西。 出门时,可以问一下他们,比如:汽车、摩托车等有几个轮胎。 早上带他们去散步时,可以叫他们看看邻居家的号码,他们能不能认得出这些数字。 去超市时,让他们帮你哪些水果或其他东西。按照你说的数字来拿,这样能让幼儿对数字更加熟悉。 其实,教幼儿认识数字有各种各样的方法,不仅仅靠纸上操练的才能让幼儿认识数字。希望每个家长教幼儿认识数字的时候能用一些有趣的方法,这样幼儿会更愿意学习而且学习的时候也不会有压力。
