We often think of mathematics skills as beginning with counting. While this is one of the early skills we assess, there are other mathematical reasoning processes that are foundational to school mathematics. Research tells us that early mathematics skills are a better predictor of adult socioeconomic status (SES) than are childhood SES or reading achievement. Developing these foundational beginning processes is critical to establishing this firm foundation. In addition, students who struggle may have gaps in these beginning processes which impact many domains of mathematics. Supporting these learners to shore up these foundations is equally essential.

In part two of this two-part series, Dr. Sara Delano Moore reviews the five beginning processes and share a deeper look at how they impact student understanding of geometry and measurement. How does understanding attributes and comparing support the ability to measure? What are the roles of matching and sorting in identifying shapes? We share activities for young learners to establish the foundation as well as resources that could support intervention in these areas for school-age learners. Watch Sara to learn more about these essential beginning processes for mathematics and how they can support your students.

This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to teachers, school leaders, and math leaders and coaches of the preK through elementary levels.
