Book Description

17 Jan 2013 1855394367 978-1855394360
Foundations of Mathematics outlines seven strands of practice which underpin successful mathematical development inchildren aged 3-7. Early years mathematics specialists, Carole and Judith, draw on their experience of working with early years practitioners, including consultants and advisers, across the UK and internationally. The book is completely up-to-date and embeds the Revised Early Years Foundation Stage throughout the book. The book brims with multi-sensory ideas that will trigger children's curiosity, measuring using sand mousse, hunting for buried treasure and building secret dens outdoors.

There are:
- activities that involve playing and exploring,
- games to make learning active,
and
- experiences to develop creative and critical thinking.

Alongside these practical experiences and activities are clear explanations of the reasoning behind the ideas with clear guidance on the role of the practitioner and 'Home Challenges' to promote the engagement of families. The authors provide straightforward advice to support the development of a mathematically-enriched learning environment and ideas to help children transfer learning into their own child-initiated play, to build a genuine and solid foundation for mathematics.

A valuable book for all early years teachers. Well presented and easy reading beginning organised into suitable and easy to follow chapters. Well worth the money. It jogged my memory about certain aspects of maths.

5.0 out of 5 stars Full of great ideas 1 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Some times you buy books and they're not very helpful, but this one most definitely is! I bought this book to help me think of new ideas for maths in my reception setting, and the book is so full of lesson ideas, free flow activities and small group tasks that I have just made several pages of notes and I can't wait to get back to school on Monday to try them out! Definitely recommend for any teacher/ practitioner in an ey setting.
