Review of the first edition “All the major areas of early childhood maths teaching and learning are covered in this powerful book… The book is also full of delightful stories… [It] would be eminently suitable for beginning and trainee teachers but would also be helpful to all those concerned in early years settings. All the relevant information is here, based on a wealth of knowledge and experience.†TES Supporting Mathematical Development in the Early Yearsprovides practical guidance for parents, teachers and other early years workers who want to give children a good start in mathematical development. Showing how competent children are as mathematicians from an early age, the book offers an overview of young children’s mathematical behaviour at home and in early years settings. The book de¿nes the content and the learning curriculum required to promote mathematical thinking, including an examination of the relationship between mathematics and language learning, and the role of other cross-curricular aspects such as information and communications technology (ICT). It explores the role of staff in observing, planning for and supporting children’s learning by using a variety of strategies, and makes suggestions for promoting effective partnerships between the parents or principal carers and early years staff. The book also considers the importance of play and imagination to the development of abstract thought. The second edition is comprehensively updated throughout and includes new material on Special Educational Needs, the very early years, the role of play, the role of ICT, and examples of outdoor play. It is essential reading for early years teachers and students, as well as parents who want to understand and develop their children’s early mathematical learning.

Mathematics is a core subject and using and applying mathematics in problem solving activities is crucial in enabling children to use their knowledge and skills in a range of situations. Mathematics Across the Curriculum shows how to teach mathematical concepts through different subjects and discussing the reasoning and research behind using problem solving and investigation teaching techniques. Best practice for planning and assessment, classroom organisation and practice, and use of resources are all discussed, with clear links to recent research and government standards and initiatives. Case studies from practicing teachers enable readers to easily relate the theoretical information to their classroom and teaching. Mathematics Across the Curriculum is essential reading for all trainee and newly qualified teachers seeking to teach engaging, inspiring and challenging mathematics lessons. It will also be a useful resource for established teachers embarking on their Masters in Teaching and Learning (MTL).

How can early years practitioners help young children to become not only numerate but aspiring mathematicians who love numbers, shapes and mathematical comparisons? The introduction of the Foundation Stage has led to practitioners seeking ways to teach maths which are more in line with the creative and playful ways young children learn other subjects. Linda Pound draws on current thinking about children's mathematical development to show how you can encourage and enhance the numeracy skills of any child in the early years by linking maths to every-day life situations and making it a playful and enjoyable cross-curricular activity. This highly practical and engaging text includes chapters on: why maths is often seen as 'hard' and what practitioners can do to help young children be more successful exploring shapes, space, measures and patterns how to make maths more fun and playful, using games, humour, stories and rhymes using music and dance to enhance mathematical understanding encouraging children to see the connection between maths and everyday experiences through, for example sorting, matching and guessing creating an environment for mathematical development, indoors and out Concluding with a chapter on how practitioners and parents can become more confident in their use of maths, this user-friendly text, packed full of ideas, is essential reading for practitioners in any early years setting. Students on Early Education courses will also find much here to inspire them.

This book offers step-by-step guidance to help busy practitioners create meaningful role play that will delight young children, enhance learning and link to the Early Learning Goals. The role play scenarios have been carefully created so that children can identify with them and will be excited and eager to join in. They give children the opportunity to play freely, to discover and develop at their own pace and to link directly to the Early Learning Goals and beyond. This Book shows practitioners exactly how to plan, organize and implement role play activities. The activities have been tried, tested and enjoyed in the busy nursery where the author works. The book also divides the play scenarios into the DfES stated area of learning (personal, social, emotional, communication, language and literacy, mathematical, knowledge of the world, creative and physical) allowing practitioners to choose activities to suit their needs. The book includes: step-by-step guidance; photographs and plans; a list of easily obtained and inexpensive play equipment; and a planning template for practitioners to develop their own ideas. It should prove useful to teachers and assistants from nursery classes up to key stage 1.
