Mathematics for Young Minds: Pre-K to 1st Grade Activities for Beginning Processes
Mathematics for Young Minds Beginning Processes is an instruction activity book filled with 75 developmentally sequenced Pre-K to 1st grade mathematical processes activities.
It also includes blackline masters and informal assessment guidelines.
This book focuses on the mathematical background and research base of children using initial mathematical reasoning processes. The goal is to help young learners strengthen their abilities to represent, reason, communicate and problem solve. This is done by developing the following five beginning processes:
Identifying and Describing Attributes
In early childhood, children should experience both repeating and growing patterns. The activities in each unit of this book contains three activities for each of the following five mathematical strands:
Space and Shape
Chance and Data
Patterns in Algebra
The Pre-K to 1st grade mathematical processes activities in each strand involve helping young children develop skills for identifying, exploring and predicting patterns.
These activities encourage children to:
Engage in discussion
Reflect on experiences
Connect new ideas with existing mathematical knowledge
Skills, Knowledge and Abilities Promoted in Students
Expand and deepen conceptual knowledge
Encourage representation abilities
Strengthen problem solving skills
Develop communication skills
Problem solve and connect mathematical ideas
