Something incredibly wonderful happens when you combine children's literature with tinkering activities. As children engage with materials and stories, math moments start to reveal themselves in surprising ways.
In this session for the 2021 Early Math Symposium, Karen and I partnered with educators Ryan Kurada, Ihuoma Iheukwumere, and Peter Limata to share learning stories from PreK-3 classrooms, highlighting children's thinking as a way to develop understanding about math and materials literacy. We tried to offer a range of practical ideas for building your own tinkering library of books and materials to support early math through hands-on explorations.
