Early Childhood Education

With radical changes coming to Early Childhood Education because of the introduction of UPK (Universal Pre-Kindgarten) and TK (Transitional Kindergarten) many teachers have more questions than ever about how to provide their students with opportunities that allow students to become adept with counting. This workshop will handle a host of ways to engage with developing student counting ability.
