Hello, Early Math-ers.
We enjoyed talking math and sharing ideas with those who made it to the NAEYC E.M.I.F. gathering this evening. Below is a list of the resources that were mentioned.
We hope to schedule some webinars in the first half of 2021. We heard that people would be interested in exploring more ideas for virtual math and more ways to support families in doing math together.
Let us know what else you would like from the group! You can post in our space in NAEYC “Hello!” or reach out to us by e-mail.
Stay safe, stay well, and have some fun with math!

For spatial thinking, I love Julie Dillemuth's books: Lucy in the city (https://www.apa.org/pubs/magination/441B170 ) and Mapping my Day (https://www.apa.org/pubs/magination/441B206 ) https://www.juliedillemuth.com/books.html
Teachers are using Jamboard as a way to build number sense. For example, a slide has a rope (clothesline) and multiple T-shirts shapes. Then there are post it notes that say "Show me 2", "Show me 5" etc. Each child has a slide to work on and have to put the t-shirts on the clothesline. This is a way that teachers are differentiating.
Here is my jamboard this week. (Carrie Cutler) https://jamboard.google.com/d/1xaSIXkZEwl_Ih4QN1nt8nUBCcju2a46Gm84YdBadvoI/edit?usp=sharing
