Here is a fresh new bulletin board idea for math and reading readiness in your Pre-K classroom. For very young children, ages three to five, interactive bulletin boards are more likely to catch their interest and contribute to their learning.
Encourage beginning math and reading skills through a fun matching activity. Matching helps children understand one to one correspondence, same and different, and promotes memory skills, all necessary to both math and reading readiness.
Create this activity on a bulletin board placed low enough for children to easily reach. Our 4′ portable freestanding dividers work well to define spaces without blocking the teacher’s view and can serve as an easy to reach display board. It can also be easily folded accordian style and stowed away on casters when not in use.
