Math is everywhere in the Pre-K classroom! From the tall towers that children are building in the block center, to the rectangular shapes of their cubbies, to the number of crackers everyone eats during snack, opportunities abound to talk about number, shape, spatial relations, measurement and pattern. You can encourage math talk during playtime, snack break, storybook reading, even nap time!
Join us to learn about the importance of surrounding young children with math language, which helps increase children’s math knowledge. Find out about the types of math words that are appropriate for young children to learn and discover practical ways of finding and infusing math language into everyday activities and routines that you’re already doing in the classroom. By the end of the webinar, you’ll know why and how to encourage children to engage in meaningful math talk.
