Solving problems in the TK classroom. What to do (and what not to do).
The TK classroom can provide a great time of learning and thinking about everyday math. One consideration that should be at the forefront of what is necessary in this year of education is “what should be delayed for kindergarten and how is that different from what is taught in TK?” If a teacher’s mindset is to push and accomplish more than a student is ready for, this can be a detriment for the child. Join us to consider what should be delayed and what should be focused on this important year of a child’s educational career.
