Digital resources you can access to continue learning at home.

At Home Learning

This module is part of At Home Learning, a partnership between Arizona Public Media and Arizona PBS providing free weekly curriculum and programming for Arizona at-home learners which adheres to Arizona's state curriculum. Visit the At Home Learning portal for more.

This week, counting is one of the math concepts explored in our programming. In " Curious George: Color me Monkey/ Special Delivery Monkey," George seems to be confused about how to count while playing George's favorite game after an afternoon lunch.

To continue learning about the educational concept of counting, check out these resources:

Teaching Your Five-Year-Old Numbers and Counting
By 5 years old, a child can often count up to 20 and beyond, and they'll start to apply this knowledge every week at school. At home, you can continue to look for simple opportunities to extend their understanding of numbers and counting in everyday activities and by playing simple math games.

Family Math
Early math skills can unlock powerful opportunities for children. So with PBS SoCal's Family Math initiative, we’re reaching out to families — particularly parents and caregivers — and offering insights, tools, and support so that they can confidently, joyfully, and authentically explore math with children aged 2 to 5.

Home Activity Counting Around the House
The purpose of this activity is to help your child explore numbers and counting, an important step toward learning how to add and subtract.

As students adjust to new learning methods at home, remember that this is also a great opportunity to spend quality time with your child. Here are some tips for parents on balancing their children's screen time with other fun and educational activities.
