This course will help you improve early math learning in your preschool classroom by understanding practical strategies that can be used to support children's success in patterning, while gaining confidence for yourself as a capable math teacher! You will learn to develop patterning opportunities that are intentional, developmentally appropriate, engaging, and playful. Create math opportunities designed to support children in achieving individual learning goals, while improving the use of spontaneous opportunities that emerge through classroom or playground interactions as teachable math moments.

This course can be completed with or without practical application in real classrooms. The National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) Professional Standards and Competencies for Early Childhood Educators will be utilized and applied in this course, as relative to developmentally appropriate practice and individualization for specific children when teaching early math skills.

NOTE: Required book must be purchased separately.

This course is applicable towards the Early Childhood Education Certificate.

Instructor
I have been in the field of early childhood education for over 20 years. I started as a live-in nanny on Long Island, near New York City and have worked in private preschools, state preschools, Head Start preschools, special education classrooms, as a behavior consultant, private contractor, and reflective practice mentor/coach. I have five children of my own who have given me almost 15 years of personal experience so far, and I was a foster parent for over a decade, which gave me lots of personal practice as well. I am passionate about helping future early childhood educators fulfill their dreams and go into the classroom with confidence. My hope is that my students become as passionate and devoted to the field as I am.
