by Kathy Richardson
Grades: Pre-Kindergarten • Item No: 123892W
For the first time in a single resource, Kathy Richardson shares her insights into the mathematical development of preschool students. Based on the most current research about the development of young children, and closely aligned with NCTM standards, this book provides teachers with everything they need to understand about teaching math in the PreKindergarten classroom. The book is organized by the key mathematical areas children “Need to Know”:
• Sorting and Classifying
• Data Collection
In addition to outlining the standards, “Big Ideas” are presented making it clear to teachers what the appropriate expectations are for PreK students. For each of these areas, activities are provided for circle time, small group, and individual instruction. In all, over 75 activities are included making this a complete resource for all PreKindergarten teachers.
