Based on years of research with early childhood teachers, author Allen Rosales provides an approach to create an emergent math curriculum that integrates children’s interests with math concepts. The mathematizing approach is different from traditional math curriculums, as it immerses children in a process that is designed to develop their understanding of math concepts in real life contexts. This approach has helped hundreds of teachers engage children in meaningful and purposeful interactions that have led to increased math, language, and inquiry skills. Mathematizing makes learning math seem like child’s play . . . and it is! Age focus: 3-6. Softbound, 176 pgs. Available June 2015.

Author Michael Gramling provides an historical overview of how educational policies came into effect and how they are driving educational practices. Gramling argues that ineffective practices are the result of unexamined public policies and asserts that educators need to challenge this kind of thinking in order to make a difference in children’s lives Powerful, thought provoking stories will inspire you to examine the problems and challenge you to envision a preschool classroom that works for all children.
