Organize Learning Environments for Math

3 Credits
Organizing Learning Environments for Math is designed to offer Preschool, Transitional Kindergarten, and Kindergarten teachers a guide for designing a learning environment that supports the development of understanding math concepts for young learners. If lessons are developed to encourage and promote understanding, children will learn that mathematics makes sense and is applicable to their everyday needs. This course is designed to help teachers of primary children establish a classroom that is supportive of an active, meaning-based approach to the teaching and learning of mathematics. The primary resources used in this course for standards are a combination of the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics and the California PreSchool Foundations. However, students are encouraged to use standards from their home state if desired.

NOTE: Required textbook must be acquired separately.

The courses I teach will provide you with multiple ideas and resources to guide the students you teach to foster their desire to learn, and to provide them with the necessary tools so that they may develop to their full potential. As you know, all children are unique, with differing interests, learning styles, skills and abilities, therefore, we must meet their needs to challenge them to be critical thinkers. As you complete this class I am here to support you, guide you, and share my many years of experiences teaching children and adult learners! My favorite teaching quote: “Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.” ~Ben Franklin
