Teaching Patterns in the ECE Classroom
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.
