Summary

For Mathematics in Early Childhood Education and Elementary Mathematics Methods courses.

Based on the theories of John Dewey, the constructivist view of children's learning, and current curriculum guidelines for mathematics, this latest text in the authors' Active Experiences series provides six clear, concise, and usable guides for turning mathematics instruction into activities that three-to-five year olds will find engaging. The experiences included are ideal for use in childcare, preschool, Head Start, and other early learning environments; as well as with early primary-grade pupils. They involve group work, investigations, and projects; are grounded in children's interests and needs; and, build, one upon the other to form a coherent learning curriculum. Additionally, each conforms to the most recent standards of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) and the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).

Features :

  • Review of children's literature--Relates books to mathematics content areas.
  • Creates a portfolio of books to get future teachers started in their first classroom--illustrates the numerous ways to use child-appealing stories, poems, and pictures to teach mathematics.
  • Resources in each chapter.
  • Guides readers to author-approved Web sites, associations, and literature of the field--provides information for lesson planning and more, pre-screened for relevance to text-sanctioned activities.
  • Thorough treatment of the home-school connection.
  • Helps students explore the relationships between these two critical elements of children's lives--gives concrete examples that support the authors' views on collaboration between teachers and families.
  • Coverage of "setting up" the mathematics area of a classroom--Addresses both indoor and outdoor spaces, health/safety issues, organizing for inclusion, and making spaces visually appealing.
  • Gives students a blueprint for arranging their own first classrooms--instills an appreciation of the impact of physical environment on learning.
  • For the Teacher sections in each experience--Including stated goals and objectives.
  • Identifies concepts key to learning mathematics--describes ways to evaluate children's progress and assess their understanding.
  • For the Children sections in each experience--Including implementation ideas and strategies for achieving the goals and objectives of each experience.
  • Provides thematic, integrated, and continual experiences for use with children in a variety of settings.
