From the Back Cover:

Based on the theories of John Dewey, the constructivist view of children's learning, and current curriculum guidelines for mathematics, this latest book in the authors' Active Experiences series provides six clear, concise, and usable guides for turning mathematics instruction into activities that three-to-five year olds will find engaging. They involve group work, investigations, and projects; are grounded in children's interests and needs; and, build, one upon the other to form a coherent learning curriculum. Additionally, each conforms to the most recent standards of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) and the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). Review of children's literature illustrates the numerous ways to use child-appealing stories, poems, and pictures to teach mathematics. A full chapter on resources provides information for lesson planning and more, pre-screened for relevance to book-sanctioned activities. Thorough treatment of the home-school connection discusses the authors' views on collaboration between teachers and families. Coverage of “setting up” the mathematics area of a classroom—addresses both indoor and outdoor spaces, health/safety issues, organizing for inclusions, and making spaces visually appealing. Ideal for professionals in childcare, preschool, Head Start, and other early learning environments.

About the Author:

The expertise and background of the authors is another important feature of this text.  Together the authors bring a unique perscpective to the book.  Both authors experienced Deweyan education.  Both worked in Head Start, child care, and other early childhood settings, and thus bring an intimate knowledge of practice to the text.  As teacher educators, they know what pre-service teachers want and need in a mathematics text.  Because both were researchers, the latest in theory and research in the field of early childhood mathematics is represented in this edition.
