Societal events over the last two years have shed even more light on how racial oppression continues to exist in all areas of life. As early childhood educators, we must make explicit efforts to address long-standing racial injustices in our field. To provide a forum for acting together, for the past year, the Racial Justice in Early Mathematics Working Group has been drafting the attached Call to Action. Our goal is to achieve 1000 signatures of commitment to the Call by October of this year.
We ask you to consider the following:
Thanks for considering, and be well!

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!

NAEYC Early Math Interest Forum gathering – 11/10/2020
Which One Doesn’t Belong? http://wodb.ca/
How Many? https://mathforlove.com/ #unitchat
6 math books (more on the way?) https://www.charlesbridge.com/collections/storytelling-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

Hello, fellow early math-ers!
Like so many things in 2020, the NAEYC annual conference is not happening the way it usually does, so we are unable to have our in-person meeting of the Early Math Interest Forum. We’d still like to get together with you!
We hope that you can join us for a remote gathering on Tuesday 11/10 at 7:30pm ET / 4:30pm PT. We will have some math fun and talk about what we've learned about doing math with young children, their families, and their teachers in these pandemic times.
If you give us your e-mail in this form - https://forms.gle/orNkjuPbjF27oXWv9 - we'll send you the details you need to get connected.
We look forward to seeing many of you next week.
