I got wind of the following site from PBS today, and I wanted to share it. The site is aimed at parents, pre-school educators and early primary (grades 1 and 2) teachers. It outlines milestones with respect to mathematical thinking (number, geometry, etc) from ages 2 up, and presents some interesting games and – for the older children – on-line activities for developing these areas. Check it out!
I am Carole Fullerton, a private consultant working with teachers around British Columbia (and beyond!) in the area of numeracy. I work with districts, whole school staffs, with school-based learning teams, in classrooms and with parents in an effort to promote mathematical thinking.
