Welcome to 2017! This year we are excited to feature a different continuing education course every month that we know will be of immediate value to you as a teacher. During the month it is featured, enjoy taking this course for credit (400 or 500 level) at the clock hour price! The discounted credit tuition is reflected on the web.
In this course, Preschool teachers will learn how to teach activity centered, basic math concepts that meet national standards for early childhood students. It is possible for early childhood students to learn math skills in the areas of numbers and operations, algebra, geometry, measurement, and data analysis and probability. Learn how to translate these standards into developmentally appropriate lessons that can provide a foundation that will best support your students’ learning. Apply mathematics using a variety of simple methods that are effective and will keep students engaged. You will walk away with classroom tools and resources to further promote the importance of math in the early childhood classroom.
