Introducing Native Numbers Number Sense is the foundation of math competency, and has been widely cited as one of the most critical early learning skills for young children. Unfortunately, most kids only get a shallow and incomplete exposure to number – stopping at awareness and simple counting. Kids are capable of so much more, if we give them the chance. Research studies with young children have shown that a solid and deep exposure to basic number concepts can have a huge impact on their ability to learn later math skills. In one such controlled study in the 1990′s, a group of children who were disadvantaged and falling behind their peers were exposed to a focused Number Sense intervention over the course of a year. By the end of the year, the children in the study had pulled ahead of their relatively advantaged peers who did not have the same intervention.
Implementing Literacy Centers in the Primary Classroom Helping Kids Master Language! With a solid early childhood literacy foundation, kids can begin to master language very quickly as they enter the first grade and progress through the second and third grades. As their attention spans increase, they are able to work more independently, making self-directed literacy centers extremely valuable to early primary grade teachers. From alphabet letters and word studies to phonics, spelling, vocabulary development and so many other disciplines to master, primary grade students benefit significantly from task-based, self-directed learning centers, which allow them to focus on activities that suit their own level and interests!
