### Math is a Blast in the Preschool Classroom

1. 1. Welcome to:“Math is a Blast in the Preschool Classroom”Presented by: Priscilla Jones<br />
2. 2. Agenda<br />6:00-6:10 Welcome and Introduction<br />6:10-7:45 Presentation will include:<br />Objectives<br />Q&A<br />Discussions<br />Activities<br />Quiz<br />7:45-8:00 Evaluations and Closing<br />
3. 3. Math is a Developmental Sequence<br />When children are allowed to explore many objects, they begin to recognize similarities and differences of objects. <br />When children can determine similarities and differences, they can classify objects. <br />When children can classify objects, they can see similarities and differences well enough to recognize patterns. <br />When children can recognize, copy, extend and create patterns, they can arrange sets in a one-to-one relationship.<br />When children can match objects one to one, they can compare sets to determine which have more and which have less. <br />When children can compare sets, they can begin to look at the “manyness” of one set and develop number concepts. <br />
4. 4. Objective One <br />Participants will better understand the Subdomain V.A.: Mathematical Thinking through review, discussion, activities , demonstrations and questions covering the following domains:<br /><ul><li>A. Mathematical Processes
5. 5. B. Patterns, Relationships, and Functions
6. 6. C. Number Concept and Operations
7. 7. D. Geometry and Spatial Relations
8. 8. E. Measurement </li></li></ul><li>Objective Two<br />Participants will better understand how to incorporate the mathematical benchmarks into their everyday program as well as how to gather materials for math centers. <br />
9. 9. Benchmark Vocabulary<br />
10. 10. Exploration of Materials<br />Discrete materials: things that can be counted (blocks, cookies, bears, etc.)<br />Continuous materials: things that can be measured (water, sand, play dough, etc. )<br />Materials can be both discrete and continuous<br />
11. 11. Spatial Relationships<br />Understanding of positional and directional vocabulary such as:<br />Up<br />Down<br />Beside<br />Near<br />Far<br />Next<br />After<br />In front of <br />
12. 12. Classification<br />Sorting, grouping objects into sets by size, shape, color, and purpose<br />
13. 13. Patterns<br />Repetition of a designated item (color, block, crayon, book) or group of items. Patterns can be created, copied and extended. <br />
14. 14. One-to-One Correspondence <br />One-to-one correspondence is matching or pairing in a one-to-one relationship. <br />Example: At the lunch table there is one napkin to every child and there is one child to every napkin. <br />
