The KCM Foundations for Early Childhood Mathematics (Formerly K-EEMC) professional development features content developed by the Erikson Institute, leaders in early childhood education. Participants will learn how to spark children's mathematical learning though developmentally appropriate exploration, discussion and activity using high-impact, evidence-based strategies and children's literature which support the teaching and learning of early mathematics.
The KCM Foundations for Early Childhood Mathematics training includes 8 half-day training sessions. Upon registering, participants are expected to attend all eight half-day sessions. These sessions (listed below) will take place from 9:00am-12:00pm, EST.
In addition, the KCM will be offering an optional extension opportunity offering during the 2016-17 academic year. Four additional half-day sessions are available for this cohort. These extension sessions will occur in the afternoons of the regularly scheduled course sessions. Topics to be explored will include Math Teaching Practices (MTPs) in the early childhood classroom, professional noticing, and other content relevant to the development of participants’ instructional decision making. Extension dates are optional, but we do encourage your participation for an additional opportunity to explore the Foundations for Early Childhood Mathematics.
