Abstract: In this paper, we describe a novel approach to teaching early mathematical concepts to young children. The approach aims to merge storytelling and Maths. Evidence show that through dramatic games and role-playing activities young children (aging from 5-7 years old) learn to master new knowledge, to fit in a new school setting and to socially relate with their peers. So taking this evidence into account, it is possible to devise an innovative learning scenario that teaches early mathematical concepts by telling and creating stories. To explore this idea, we first started by developing an application that provides children from 5 to 7 years old to learn simple maths concepts by interacting and playing in a game. Then, we take this project a step forward and explore the introduction of storytelling by devising an engaging approach of presenting the maths concepts through the use of a story.
