STEM Connections for Early Childhood: Make It Math!
Presented by: Worcester Child Development Head Start
Often in early childhood settings, teachers hesitantl yapproach math in their classrooms. There can be a sense of fear, discomfort or lack of knowledge on the part of teachers when asked to plan math related activities and complete math related child assessments. The STEM Connections for Early Childhood: Make It Math! exhibit will offer visitors the opportunity to break through some of those barriers. Connections will be made to how math activities that are well thought out and dynamic support all areas of STEM thinking. This interactive exhibit will help participants gain a deeper understanding of what the math concepts are and how to make those concepts come to life in exciting and meaningful ways for young children. Resources and insight will be available into how to partner with families to build their awareness of the importance of making math a part of everyday experiences with their children.
