Back to Early Math Symposium June 2024

Coaching in Early Math

Coaching is an ongoing process grounded in a collaborative learning relationship between a coach and coachee. In this session, we will share resources for how to provide coaching in early math. Participants will explore strategies for building positive coach-coachee relationships and reflect on examples of coaches engaging with educators to support their early math teaching practices. Resources from this session are part of the Count Play Explore (CPE) online suites for professional learning facilitators and educators working with children from birth to age eight.
