Teaching Numeracy to Young Children: A Responsive and Differentiated Approach
Thursday, January 28, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST
Presented by Brian Mowry, M.A., Early Childhood Mathematics Consultant and Specialist
Sponsored by Frog Street Press
This webinar presented a research-supported scope and sequence for teaching young children concepts related to number sense. Mathematics specialist Brian Mowry delivered practical tips for:
- small number recognition of quantities to 3
- small number recognition supported through meaningful counting with quantities up to 5
- synchronized and organized counting with sets up to 10
- conceptual subitizing of quantities to 10 and connection of numerals to quantities 1- 10
- comparison of quantities 1-10 via counting
- modeling the joining of sums to 10 and finding differences (separating) within 10
Mr. Mowry reviewed engaging whole group instructional content and activities appropriate for all developmental levels represented within one classroom. He discussed how to differentiate within small groups and individualize instruction following the scope and sequence presented in the above topics so that each child can practice at a level commensurate to their skill set and development.
