Example text

Can the animals be arranged from largest to smallest for a parade? All of these questions involve important mathematical concepts, and children’s inquiry drives their formation of these mathematical relationships. While inquiry often stems from the child, teachers can stimulate investigation through carefully posed questions related to the child’s play. The teacher might ask, “Will all of the animals fit into this truck? ” This intentional teaching through inquiry presents more interesting questions for children to answer and moves their learning forward.

Many teachers plan quantification games for their classrooms because these materials strongly support children’s construction of number concepts (Ramani and Siegler 2008; Whyte and Bull 2008; Young-Loveridge 2004). When science materials are used as part of the game, such as shells or fossils for counters, or toy representations of fish or insects for movers, they spark children’s interest in learning about science. This can lead to more in-depth explorations in the science area of the classroom.

The language of math that permeates math-rich classrooms helps children analyze problem situations. An example of this might be whether three friends can go to the gross-motor room together when only two spaces are open on the waiting list. The concrete materials that are a mainstay in quality programs enable children to represent mathematical problems in ways that they can understand. Geometry in the early years involves much more than naming shapes. It also includes understanding spatial relationships, positional statements, and the properties of two- and three-dimensional objects.
