Meaning Making in Early Mathematics Education: A professional learning opportunity for teachers and leaders working with 3 to 5 year old children.

June 15, 2021 @ 8:00 am - June 18, 2021 @ 11:30 am

Hosted by Fox Valley United Way SPARK & The Erikson Early Math Collaborative

Leaders and teaching staff participate in sessions that provide active exploration of important mathematical ideas, children’s learning progressions for concepts and how adults can scaffold children’s developing thinking and communication skills. Participants will build understanding through investigations, video analysis, children’s literature, and discussion with colleagues.

These big ideas are further developed in the Early Marth Collaborative’s book:

Big Ideas of Early Mathematics: What Teachers of Young Children Need to Know.
