Mathematical learning begins naturally in each child’s interaction and explorations in daily life. Young children need programs that expand and deepen their already-developed conceptual knowledge. They need a mathematics world that is rich in concrete materials, heavy with language, and almost devoid of direct teaching.
The Mathematics For Young Minds series is a collection of 6 books that presents an early childhood education activity approach which provides a balance between a child-focused and a teacher-guided learning experience. Each book contains activities that involve young children in the initial reasoning processes of identifying and describing attributes, matching, sorting, comparing, and ordering.
Each book includes
Individual, small-group, and whole-class activities
