  1. Zeroing in on Number and Operations, Pre-K–K: Key Ideas and Common Misconceptions

    When you talk with students about their number sense and computational skills, you're bound to uncover some surprising gaps in their understanding. Knowing how to identify and bridge those gaps is essential for helping students at all levels advance as mathematical thinking. Sharing the insights they've gained through decades of mathematics teaching and research, Linda Dacey and Anne Collins help you focus on what students really need to know and understand at each year level. The modules for grades preschool and Foundation Year are organised into three sections: "Numbers", "Relationships" and "Addition and Subtraction". Each module begins with the identification of its mathematical focus and the potential challenges and misconceptions associated with those ideas.

  7. Messy Maths: A Playful, Outdoor Approach for Early Years

    Messy Maths offers a rich resource of ideas that will inspire you to tap into the endless supply of patterns, textures, colours and quantities of the outdoors and deepen children's understanding of maths through hands-on experience. Being outside makes maths real. In the classroom environment, maths can seem disconnected from everyday reality. Messy Maths reimagines the outdoor space through a mathematical lens, providing a treasure trove of suggestions to empower you to blend outdoor learning into your teaching practice. It is not a "how to" guide, but rather an easy-to-use reference book replete with ready-to-use games and open-ended ideas designed to help children become confident and skilled in thinking about, using and exploring abstract mathematical concepts as all they play outside.

  8. The Young Artist as Scientist: What Can Leonardo Teach Us?

    This is the first in-depth look at the important connections between the arts and science specifically for early childhood education (Preschool-Year 3). Highlighting their many commonalities such as the processes involved in creative problem-solving, the author draws on what we can learn from Leonardo da Vinci as the supreme artist-scientist. Every chapter begins with a vignette of Leonardo and relates his thinking to the development of children's ideas in the arts and STEM (STEAM). This fresh look at the interdisciplinary connections of the arts and science offers early childhood teachers and administrators a spectrum of tools for connecting the creative arts (art, movement, drama and music) to the STEM movement, 21st-century skills and developmentally appropriate skills.
