# Hurrah for math in preschool!

Our students love to fill their math bags with little objects from home then share them with the class.

We get in all kinds of interesting math tokens to explore including lids, rocks, balls, small toys, and the list goes on.

After sharing all of the many interesting tokens the children bring in, they all become part of our class loose parts math collections.
