  1. 1. Math & Science for Young Children ECE 141 / 111F winter quarter 2010 Emily McMason Units 2 & 3
  2. 2. children’s book example: The Kids’ Nature Book 365 Indoor/Outdoor Activities & Experiences Susan Milord
  3. 3. <ul><li>As you move through your day with children, there are three types of learning experiences: </li></ul>Unit 2 how concepts are acquired
  4. 4. <ul><li>As you move through your day with children, there are three types of learning experiences: </li></ul><ul><li>Naturalistic learning – emphasized in the sensorimotor period </li></ul>Unit 2 how concepts are acquired
  5. 5. <ul><li>As you move through your day with children, there are three types of learning experiences: </li></ul><ul><li>Naturalistic learning </li></ul><ul><li>Informal learning – introduced in sensorimotor, increased throughout preoperational period. </li></ul>Unit 2 how concepts are acquired
  6. 6. <ul><li>As you move through your day with children, there are three types of learning experiences: </li></ul><ul><li>Naturalistic learning </li></ul><ul><li>Informal learning </li></ul><ul><li>teachable moments </li></ul><ul><li>scaffolding </li></ul>Unit 2 how concepts are acquired
  7. 7. <ul><li>As you move through your day with children, there are three types of learning experiences: </li></ul><ul><li>Naturalistic learning </li></ul><ul><li>Informal learning </li></ul><ul><li>Structured learning – used sparingly in sensorimotor and early preoperational. Very brief and focused. </li></ul>Unit 2 how concepts are acquired
  8. 8. <ul><li>Divergent questions and directions </li></ul><ul><li>Convergent questions and directions </li></ul>Unit 2 how concepts are acquired
  9. 9. <ul><li>Divergent questions and directions </li></ul><ul><li>No one right answer. Ex: what can you tell me about? </li></ul><ul><li>Convergent questions and directions </li></ul><ul><li>Specific response. Ex: Find a ball smaller than this. </li></ul>Unit 2 how concepts are acquired
  10. 10. <ul><li>Learning Styles- the work of Howard Gardner. </li></ul><ul><li>Multiple intelligences: </li></ul>Unit 2 how concepts are acquired

  20. 20. <ul><li>Learning Styles- the work of Howard Gardner. </li></ul><ul><li>Multiple intelligences: linguistic , logical-mathematical, bodily-kinesthetic, interpersonal, intrapersonal, musical, spatial, naturalist, existential . </li></ul>Unit 2
  21. 21. <ul><li>Learning Styles- the work of Howard Gardner. </li></ul><ul><li>Multiple intelligences: linguistic , logical-mathematical, bodily-kinesthetic, interpersonal, intrapersonal, musical, spatial, naturalist, existential . </li></ul><ul><li>Make sure you have an understanding of each one. </li></ul>Unit 2
  22. 22. <ul><li>Multiple intelligences: linguistic , logical-mathematical, bodily-kinesthetic, interpersonal, intrapersonal, musical, spatial, naturalist, existential . </li></ul><ul><li>So often we only teach in the first two ways. </li></ul><ul><li>Who are you as a learner? </li></ul><ul><li>Who are you as a teacher? </li></ul><ul><li>What kind of learners are the majority of your students? Can you identify type for each child? </li></ul>Unit 2
  23. 23. <ul><li>Teach a child to count to 10. How many different ways can you do it? Write down a way for each intelligence. Be ready to share in class. </li></ul><ul><li>Multiple intelligences: linguistic , logical-mathematical, bodily-kinesthetic, interpersonal, intrapersonal, musical, spatial, naturalist, existential . </li></ul>Unit 2
  24. 24. <ul><li>Think of all the different ways you can teach the same material – just by moving around within these different frameworks: </li></ul><ul><li>Piaget /Vygotsky </li></ul><ul><li>Learning cycle </li></ul><ul><li>Natural /informal /structured </li></ul><ul><li>Divergent / convergent </li></ul><ul><li>Multiple intelligences </li></ul><ul><li>… is your head spinning yet? </li></ul>Now for some Fun?
  25. 25. <ul><li>I completely, fully, 100% disagree with the text about technology. </li></ul><ul><li>No need until they are ‘fully literate’ which is usually 5 th grade. </li></ul><ul><li>Children stop using their minds [the calculator must be right] </li></ul><ul><li>The line between ‘education’ and ‘game’ is too small, and the detriments are too many…obesity, violence, pregnancy, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>And all of this is ironic because this is hybrid class. However, you are not 5 th graders (and you are smarter!) </li></ul>One BIG divergence:
  26. 26. Mental stretch
  27. 27. Unit 3
  28. 28. <ul><li>Ok, that’s it! Memorize this figure and you’re done with unit 3.  </li></ul><ul><li>Assess- this is always the starting place. The first question in teaching ‘where are they now?’ watch and see where they are </li></ul><ul><li>Choose objectives- what’s the goal? What are you after? What should they learn next? </li></ul><ul><li>Plan experiences- naturalistic/informal/structured, learning cycle, multiple intelligences </li></ul><ul><li>Select materials- concrete to abstract, three dimensional to two [dolls to cut out dolls to pictures of squares to paper & pencil] </li></ul><ul><li>Teach- need I say more? </li></ul><ul><li>Evaluate-what did the child learn? What can they now do? Assessment questions are asked again </li></ul>Unit 3
  29. 29. <ul><li>problem solving in science: make it interesting </li></ul><ul><li>Ex: mass of 10 kg is a projectile… </li></ul><ul><li>Verses: Cinderella and her evil step sisters are engaged in a glass slipper kicking contest. </li></ul><ul><li>Context gives them a hook, and helps them predict the possible answer. </li></ul><ul><li>Brownie point alert: ask me about Cinderella & Eden in class. </li></ul>Unit 3
  30. 30. <ul><li>problem solving in math: help them estimate </li></ul><ul><li>Ex: 43+38+52… </li></ul><ul><li>Start with: 40+40+50. They know their answer should be around 130. </li></ul><ul><li>Estimation gives them a solid starting place, and helps them predict the possible answer. </li></ul>Unit 3
