Experts believe that the math achievement of young children can be improved by placing more emphasis on math instruction throughout the school day. This continuing education course was developed using information from the U.S. Department of Education’s Institute of Education Sciences (IES) and provides practical, evidence-based information for teaching math in preschool, prekindergarten, and kindergarten classrooms. Specifically, the course identifies the early math content areas that are important for young children’s math development and suggests instructional techniques that can be used to teach them. It also identifies common themes relevant to young children learning math and gives practical examples for teachers.
1. Summarize the common themes that guide effective math instruction in preschool, prekindergarten, and kindergarten.
2. Identify strategies to teach number and operations, geometry, patterns, measurement, and data analysis to young children using a developmental progression.
3. Discuss how progress monitoring is used to ensure that math instruction builds on what each child knows.
4. Show how teachers encourage children to view and describe their world mathematically.
5. Determine ways that teachers can dedicate time each day to teaching math and integrate math instruction throughout the school day.
6. Outline research findings pertaining to math achievement among young children.
7. Describe roadblocks that may occur as teachers implement new strategies, and solutions for overcoming any obstacles.
