M5 Early Math Practices

As part of the California Statewide Early math initiative, WestEd developed four video guides to promote teachers’ use of the M5 Early Math Practices with different age groups (infants, toddlers, and preschoolers). Each video guide provides educators with a process to learn about the M5 practices as well as an opportunity to watch a video that illustrates M5 in action, examine and explain how M5 practices are illustrated in the clip, and reflect on their own practice and the implementation of M5 practices within their own settings. The four video guides discuss ways early math trainers and coaches can use the M5 practices to build educators’ early math teaching practices.
