1, 2, 3, 4, Foundations to Early Numeracy and More!
Developing a conceptual understanding of numbers and how they work is critical for continued success in mathematics throughout a child’s academic career. In this edWeb.net webinar for the Early Childhood Learning Solutions community, Brian Mowry, M.A., Early Childhood Mathematics Consultant and Specialist, reviewed and discussed the knowledge and skills — in particular those related to verbal counting, enumeration, cardinality, and small number recognition — which develop in the preschool years and lay the foundation for good number sense.
Webinar attendees learned to:
- identify pre-K and kindergarten focal areas and national standards related to the domain of number and operations;
- articulate a scope and sequence for teaching early numeracy in early childhood classrooms; and
- use materials and instructional strategies (e.g., guided explorations, small/whole group investigations, and learning centers) that promote inquiry into deep mathematical topics and are developmentally appropriate for 3 to 5-year-old children.
