ABOUT THE SHOW
Board the train on which each stop is an opportunity to meet new friends, play games, and practice basic mathematical skills. It’s fun to count, match, sort and help BabyTV’s friendly characters solve simple riddles on the train journey.
This series addresses various aspects of mathematical thinking and invites your child to practice counting, matching, and sorting, and encourages him/her to explore geometric shapes.
Use familiar objects in your day-to-day activities to practice counting together, identifying the different shapes, and encourage mathematical thinking in a playful manner. For example, while you are cooking, put some cleaned jar caps, coasters or other safe round objects in a basket. Remind your child they are similar because they are all circles. Can they be sorted by color? Next time use squares, such as various sized Tupperware lids.
