Overall description of the series:
        Come deepen your understanding of early childhood mathematics. Sessions feature activities you can use the next day with your students and each are grounded in developmental learning trajectories for early childhood mathematics. Each session will be presented in an engaging, interactive format. The second session will build upon the first, though can be taken independently.

Counting: Children love to count things! Counting collections are a great way to get kids excited about mathematics and hone/extend early counting principles, early place value understanding, skip counting, and addition.

The Development of Number Sense—Subitizing and Number (Quantity) Recognition): Through games and activities we will explore the four number relationships that provide the foundation for number sense.                   
The Development of Number Sense—Comparing Numbers (Composing and Decomposing):
We will dig deeper into the four number relationships and children’s understanding of number and quantity, as well as, how to leverage the four number relationships during  instruction to support children’s mathematical understanding and growth.

Learning Objectives will be:

  • Participants will understand the developmental mathematics learning trajectories.
  • Participants will gain child-centered, developmentally appropriate instructional practices.
  • Participants will explore strategies that nurture young children's joy and curiosity in mathematics.
