  1. Joyful Math: Invitations to Play and Explore in the Early Childhood Classroom

    In Deanna Pecaski McLennan’s kindergarten classroom, maths isn’t limited to a specific block of time. It’s built into the environment and inseparable from everything her young students do. All of the maths is infused with a sense of exploration, wonder and joy. Deanna’s book, Joyful math, is about creating invitations for young children to engage with maths ideas through art, literacy and outdoor play. She focuses on building spaces in early childhood classrooms where children see themselves as mathematical thinkers with valuable ideas from the very start. Supported by her experiences exploring maths with young children, Deanna’s methods will inspire educators to be curious about maths, take risks, try different approaches, observe carefully and collaborate with children as co-learners.

They advocate using the Professional Learning Community at Work (PLC) process to increase mathematics achievement and give students more equitable learning experiences. The authors share tools and protocols for effectively performing collaborative tasks, such as unwrapping standards, generating unit calendars, determining academic vocabulary and rigorous lessons, utilising and sharing self-reflections and designing robust units of instruction.

  4. Hands Down, Speak Out: Listening and Talking Across Literacy and Math, K–5

    Math coach Kassia Omohundro Wedekind and literacy coach Christy Hermann Thompson have spent years comparing notes on how to build effective classroom communities across the content areas. How, they wondered, can we lay the groundwork for classroom conversations that are less teacher-directed and more conducive to student-to-student dialogue? Their answers start with Hands-Down Conversations, an innovative discourse structure in which students’ ideas and voices take the lead while teachers focus on listening and facilitating.
