Overview

This engaging, exciting introduction to early math concepts will be a sure-fire hit with young children. They can go on a Geometric Shape Hunt, measure with Pompoms, or find the Missing Numbers—just a few of the fun, simple activities you’ll find in Math in Minutes.

The activities progress in difficulty within each chapter. Some activities offer a way to “Take It Up a Level” for children who want a challenge. Organized by math concept, each of the activities relates to the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics standards and uses easy-to-find materials available in any classroom. Because assessment has become so important in education, each activity begins with “Math Objectives that Meet Standards” to help teachers meet the specific standards set by their state. The book’s unique tips and insights from an experienced teacher will help new and veteran teachers alike.

Sharon MacDonald has been training teachers for over fifteen years. She is a frequent keynote speaker and workshop presenter at early childhood conferences. This is her fifth book with Gryphon House. Her other titles include Sanity Savers for Early Childhood Teachers; Squish, Sort, Paint, and Build; Block Play; and Everyday Discoveries. Sharon lives in San Antonio, Texas.
