Saturday, May 14th: Math for Early Learners (PreK-K)
For this TREC webinar, we have partnered with the Center for Recruitment and Retention of Mathematics Teachers (CRR). The webinar will focus on Math for Early Learners including concepts of shape, space, sound, and symbol across mathematics and reading AND story-telling as a development of problem posing.
Math for Early Learners was a two-day webinar, each with two sessions in the day. The above video is the first day.
The recording of the second day can be viewed here: https://trecarizona.org/resources/math-for-early-learners-may-21-vod/
The Geometry of Letters
Young children learn letters, sounds, and numbers in much the same way–both as a symbol and an experience. Come and explore ways in which children can connect shape, space, sound, and symbol across mathematics and reading in a fun and engaging way.
Problem Posing in Preschool: Connecting Storytelling to Mathematics
Young children love to tell stories, and they learn the structure of stories by telling them. Come and explore ways that your learners can story-tell (problem pose) as young learners, supporting their development of part and whole, putting together, and taking apart.
