Young children are active investigators of their world. Learning about space and shape helps them make sense of the world around them and lays the foundation for understanding geometry. Children develop this knowledge through experiences in four aspects: movement in space, location and direction, three-dimensional objects, and two-dimensional shapes. Additionally, it is the language children learn through their early geometry years that will set the stage for future success in the mathematics classroom.
In this edWebinar, early childhood mathematics consultant at ORIGO Education, Jessica Bobo, explores these key areas of teaching early geometry concepts through real world connections:
- Positional and directional language
- 3D concepts
- 2D concepts
Early childhood through elementary teachers and administrators, including math supervisors, math curriculum directors, special education professionals, and math interventionists are invited to watch this recorded edWebinar. Explore the pathway to early geometry success and walk away with a brand-new perspective on this intriguing concept!
