This first edition gives educators a detailed view of how children ages three to six learn, based on theories of Piaget, Vygotsky and social constructivist learning. It examines how children respond in the steps of inquiry and how educators can develop skills to foster children's active exploration in each step. Through an array of exploratory curriculum styles in math and science, including Inquiry Topics, students will develop strong skills in selecting, framing, and expanding curriculum for the preschool and kindergarten children teach. Educators also will become familiar with introducing an array of technology to enhance inquiry in the classroom. Benefits: * Anecdotes and straightforward information enable students to easily grasp theoretical concepts Discussions of family, culture and societal issues promote understanding of children's approach to thinking and learning Presentation of current early childhood theory enables its integration into math and science curriculum development Discussion of technology in the early childhood classroom gives students a knowledge base of appropriate and innovative technology uses Instructor's manual offers in-class learning activities and hands-on laboratory experiences on the process and topics of the three subjects Curriculum Inquiry Topics in math and science encourage their integration into the students' own teaching * Discussions of family, culture and societal issues promote understanding of children's approach to thinking and learning * Presentation of current early childhood theory enables its integration into math and science curriculum development * Discussion of technology in the early childhood classroom gives students a knowledge base of appropriate and innovative technology uses * Curriculum Inquiry Topics in math and science encourage their integration into the students' own teaching

"Integrating Math and Science in Early Childhood Classrooms Through Big Ideas" offers teachers a way to think about the future classroom and to meet the needs of children who come to into it with diverse experience, knowledge, and abilities. "Change how we think about math and science for young children," the authors say in their Preface. "Instead of separating the disciplines, planning lessons and topics and projects aimed at math OR science content, let's look at the world the way the child does. Children think in terms of big ideas." In this unique book, the authors focus on big ideas-like patterns, transformation, movement, balance, and relationships-as a way to think about content, and they integrate science and mathematics through these big ideas, rather than linking them topically. The book looks at why it is important to think about thinking, introduces assessment early to help the teacher plan for assessment before teaching even begins, and sets up an environment that will support the construction of the big ideas that integrate math and science. Real-life scenarios provide invaluable insights into the teacher's thinking and planning, and each chapter includes two modules to be used for in-depth exploration of different aspects of the big ideas. It's a unique exploration of thinking and learning. The First Edition of "Integrating Math and Science in Early Childhood Classrooms Through Big Ideas" includes: Show future teachers why it is important to think about thinking. The first part of the book looks at this new way of teaching--the underlying framework of big ideas as a way to integrate math and science. Help students plan for assessment before teaching begins. Chapter 2 provides the knowledge needed in this critical area of teaching. Help students construct meaningful understandings of how math and science can be integrated through the big ideas that form the structure for any curriculum. Engage students in classroom experiences through real-life scenarios, illustrations, and photos. Introduce students to the ideas that form the foundation of a well-integrated curriculum. In an engaging style, the book is laid out to support real-life planning in a classroom.

Expectations for early learning are very different than they were even as recently as a decade ago. With increased recognition of the intellectual capacities of young children, as well as a growing understanding of how these capacities develop and can be fostered, has come a growing recognition that early childhood education, in both formal and informal settings, may not be helping all children maximize their cognitive capacities. Mathematical and Scientific Development in Early Childhood explores the research in cognition and developmental psychology that sheds light on children's capacity to learn mathematical and scientific ideas. This summary report of the discussions and presentations at the workshop is designed to frame the issues relevant to advancing research useful to the development of research-based curricula for mathematics and science for young children.

When young children first arrive at school, they generally know how to use a mobile phone and a tablet, and how to count, share and measure. They have a sense of wonder about the world around them. They expect to further interact with technology and to build and extend their mathematics and science knowledge. Teaching Early Years Mathematics, Science and ICT shows how teachers of children in their first three years of formal schooling can guide students in developing a sound understanding of the key concepts in mathematics and science in classroom and field activities. It shows how to select appropriate educational technology, and effectively and routinely integrate it into the learning experience, as part of students' wider classroom learning. Throughout, the authors make connections between children's out-of-school and in-school experiences, as well as connections across key learning areas. They provide real classroom examples of learning experiences which can be adapted for different year levels. A reflection template assists teachers in planning and successfully implementing teaching strategies to meet curriculum requirements. Teaching Early Years Mathematics, Science and ICT helps teachers bridge theory and practice in teaching children aged 5 to 8 years.
