Early math with families question

  • 1.  Early math with families question

    Posted 11-09-2021 10:03 AM

    I am one of the co-facilitators of the Early Math Interest Forum here at NAEYC. A number of us are interested in this topic and we wondered about experiences of others.

    Below are questions for anyone who works with families of young children. 

    1. Do your families see themselves as having a role in their young children's math development outside of school?
    2. What strengths do your families bring to their children's math learning, thinking, and doing?
    3. What has worked well for you in supporting your families around math outside of school?

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
