How can math and literacy be taught together in the early childhood classroom? In this workshop, we will answer this question by exploring the many ways literacy can be a context for mathematical problem solving. We will examine and experience ways to teach number sense, patterns, mathematical vocabulary, representations, and problem solving through reading, writing, oral language, phonics and phonemic awareness, and a print-rich environment. Participants will engage in and reflect on developmentally appropriate, integrated activities that can be used with PreSchool, PreKindergarten, and Kindergarten students to learn both literacy and math skills and concepts. Through purposeful play, read alouds, songs, games, writing, and drawing, participants will analyze opportunities to maximize instructional time using the essential components of early literacy and math instruction. Participants will leave with activities for whole group, small group, and centers that they can use immediately.
