Stimulating and engaging children in PSRN
The attached PowerPoint (downloadable in two parts because of the size) gives an overview of young children’s engagement with mathematics in the environment. There are many examples of children using the materials around them in ways that can give us insight into their developing mathematical thinking.
The PowerPoint provides a really good overview of our project. It shows the results of resourcing for and modeling maths, in particular mark making, for young children. Do look through it to gather ideas about how you can set up your environment and participate with children to encourage their mathematical thinking and problem solving.
