Hendrickson, A. Dean
Mathematics and the use of mathematical thinking should be much more than what has been traditional school arithmetic. Much of the mathematical reasoning can be developed and experienced out of school, particularly in the home. This material is a teacher's guide designed to help parents support what is done with their children in class. Background material for parents is provided. Some underlying principles for teaching mathematics meaningfully are listed. End-of-the-year assessment material is presented. A total of 44 activities on the following concepts and skills are included: (1) comparing; (2) sorting; (3) ordering; (4) working with patterns; (5) number concept; and (6) arithmetic operations. Songs and verses for kindergarten children are provided. (YP)
