In this interactive workshop, we will share videos created by preschool teachers in Chelsea Achieve in Mathematics (CAM). The short videos show preschool children engaged in higher order thinking about mathematical concepts, including dual language learners and children with disabilities. Following each video, the participants will discuss with peers how the teachers created the opportunity for the higher order thinking, how the children reacted, and how these activities link with the Mass Curriculum Frameworks for Mathematics, and the Guidelines for Preschool Learning Experiences. Following each video discussion, the facilitators will summarize with the developmental level of the children in relationship to learning trajectories. At the conclusion of the session, individuals will reflect on how to use the reflection process in their own practice with preschool children or preschool teachers.
