Math is Everywhere!

Infants begin to interact with math through their everyday experiences from the moment they are born. Our role as early educators is to ensure our interactions with our youngest learners are filled with meaningful language and authentic learning opportunities. Participants will learn basic math language while learning about hands-on math invitations.
