"The Big Ideas that convey the core concepts of mathematics are at the heart of this new book that gives early childhood educators the skills they need to organize for mathematics teaching and learning during the early years. For teachers of children ages three through six, the book provides foundations for further mathematics learning and helps facilitate long-term mathematical understanding. It's the perfect guide for those who want to focus their instruction on mathematics that is central, coherent, and rigorous. In it, readers see clearly why building early foundations in math matters, why teachers' understanding of foundational math matters, and why the methods used to teach it matter. Developed by the Erikson Institute's Early Math Collaborative team, the book groups the Big Ideas into nine chapter on topics that are familiar to early childhood teachers-sets, pattern and regularity, number, counting, operations, measurement, data analysis, shapes, and spatial thinking. The work is in keeping with the content strands identified by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM), and maps pathways to help teachers meet the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics." -- publisher website.

"Integrating Math and Science in Early Childhood Classrooms Through Big Ideas" offers teachers a way to think about the future classroom and to meet the needs of children who come to into it with diverse experience, knowledge, and abilities. "Change how we think about math and science for young children," the authors say in their Preface. "Instead of separating the disciplines, planning lessons and topics and projects aimed at math OR science content, let's look at the world the way the child does. Children think in terms of big ideas." In this unique book, the authors focus on big ideas-like patterns, transformation, movement, balance, and relationships-as a way to think about content, and they integrate science and mathematics through these big ideas, rather than linking them topically. The book looks at why it is important to think about thinking, introduces assessment early to help the teacher plan for assessment before teaching even begins, and sets up an environment that will support the construction of the big ideas that integrate math and science. Real-life scenarios provide invaluable insights into the teacher's thinking and planning, and each chapter includes two modules to be used for in-depth exploration of different aspects of the big ideas. It's a unique exploration of thinking and learning. The First Edition of "Integrating Math and Science in Early Childhood Classrooms Through Big Ideas" includes: Show future teachers why it is important to think about thinking. The first part of the book looks at this new way of teaching--the underlying framework of big ideas as a way to integrate math and science. Help students plan for assessment before teaching begins. Chapter 2 provides the knowledge needed in this critical area of teaching. Help students construct meaningful understandings of how math and science can be integrated through the big ideas that form the structure for any curriculum. Engage students in classroom experiences through real-life scenarios, illustrations, and photos. Introduce students to the ideas that form the foundation of a well-integrated curriculum. In an engaging style, the book is laid out to support real-life planning in a classroom.

Child Development for Teachers of Young Children is a useful resource for pre-service early childhood teachers from childcare through to school settings. This text is based on understanding young childrena s developmental characteristics and differences, as well as planning around their interests. Child development covers a vast area of research, much of which has been used to inform teachers, parents and students about ways to nurture children into happy, competent and well-balanced individuals. The authors of this Australian text have married these areas together with essential up-to-date research, and focal information on domains of development. The first section of this text reviews domains of development with points that highlight applications to teaching contexts. The second section tackles domains of learning/curriculum areas where developmentally appropriate, individualised and culturally sensitive practice is integrated into teaching. This text also makes valuable contributions to the art and science of teaching young children in other settings: many children are tutored individually in small groups in learning centres, after school care programs, sports programs and music lessons to count a few.

Expectations for early learning are very different than they were even as recently as a decade ago. With increased recognition of the intellectual capacities of young children, as well as a growing understanding of how these capacities develop and can be fostered, has come a growing recognition that early childhood education, in both formal and informal settings, may not be helping all children maximize their cognitive capacities. Mathematical and Scientific Development in Early Childhood explores the research in cognition and developmental psychology that sheds light on children's capacity to learn mathematical and scientific ideas. This summary report of the discussions and presentations at the workshop is designed to frame the issues relevant to advancing research useful to the development of research-based curricula for mathematics and science for young children.

The purpose of this volume is to "unseal" or reveal the mysteries in the prophecy of Daniel. The book of Daniel is the ONLY example in the entire bible of a prophecy that was "shut up" and/or "sealed" in antiquity. This is a mysterious phrase and is the reason the book is NOT well understood to the present time. The "shutting up" or "sealing" of the book must mean that the full and complete MEANING of the prophecy would NOT be revealed to the understanding of men. That is, until the arrival of a time period called "the time of the end." (See Dan. 12:9) This appears to be the exact case because there are things in the prophecy that clearly have NOT been correctly understood to this very day. Examples of these misunderstood things in the prophecy include: (1) The meaning of the phrase, "the time of the end." (2) The historical identity of the "willful king" of Dan. 11:36. (3) The true meaning of the word "indignation" in 8:19 & 11:36. (4) The historical connection between the "sale of the land" in 11:39 AND the "willful king" of 11:36. (5) The separation of the prophecy between ancient and modern. This approximate1900 years time span is seen between 11:39 and 40. . The first mention of "sealing" is seen in 8:26, where the Archangel Gabriel instructs Daniel to "shut thou up the vision, for it shall be for many days." Gabriel is referring to Daniel's vision of chapter 8. It seems the "shutting up" of that vision contributes to the later "sealing" of the entire book. In 12: 4, the Archangel Gabriel instructed Daniel to "shut up the words and seal the, BOOK ( even) to the time of the end." (KJV) Note: The word "even" is a suppled word as it does not appear in the original. The Septuagint (LXX) uses the word "to" instead of "even." Gabriel instructed Daniel to seal the book in 12:4, but he tells Daniel in 12:9 to-- : "Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end." Gabriel must have assumed that Daniel had effectively "sealed" the book according to his previous instructions. The mysterious phrase "the time of the end' is mentioned 5 times in the prophecy. Some writers have said this is a short period of several decades time that will occur just before the end of human history on earth. However, one must assume from these verses that the TRUE MEANING of the prophecy would then be fully understood at or during the "time of the end." Most writers have assumed the existence of only ONE "time of the end" in the book. However, it is easily proved there are two such periods and they are parallels of each other. The first period occurred at the end of the Jewish "era." The second period will occur at the end of the Gentile "era." The present volume is a calculated attempt to "unseal" the prophecy. One reason for this idea is that the world now "lives" in the last "time of the end." After all, the prophecy states that it would be "sealed to the time of the end." The clear inference is that it would be "unsealed" at (or during( that time period. Because of a decades long, prayerful and diligent historical search, every mystery in the prophecy has now been revealed in the present volume. The prophecy can now be fully understood for the first time since the archangel Gabriel (and Daniel) "sealed" it over 2000 years ago.

This teacher’s guide provides the background information, STEM concepts, and strategies needed to successfully implement an early STEM curriculum (Ramps and Pathways) with young children, ages 3–8. R&P actively engages young children in designing and building ramp structures using wooden cove molding, releasing marbles on the structures, and observing what happens. Children use logical-mathematical thinking and problem-solving skills as they explore science concepts related to motion, force, and energy. This guide helps teachers to: Structure and organize an engaging STEM learning environment. Understand and promote logical-mathematical and scientific thinking during investigations. Promote social settings that enhance communication, cooperation, and collaboration. Make the necessary accommodations and modifications for diverse learners. Integrate STEM concepts and skills with other content areas. Align teaching and learning with Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Assess STEM learning using formative and summative assessments. Establish adult learning communities to support ongoing professional development. Help children develop habits and behaviors that contribute to positive attitudes toward STEM. This one-of-a-kind resource uses a newly created Inquiry Teaching Model (ITM) as the conceptual framework and devotes specific attention to the importance of an inclusive, social, STEM learning environment in which children are free to collaborate, take risks, and investigate within the context of exploratory and constructive play. “This book is a must for all concerned with the education of young children. Using ramps and pathways as an exciting and stimulating example of how to engage children in rich STEM experiences, this team of highly knowledgeable and skilled researchers and practitioners draw from their deep and extensive backgrounds to present a clear and comprehensive view of the current landscape of inquiry-based STEM teaching and learning for young children. It is a book that can and should inform both policy and practice.” —Karen Worth, Elementary Education Department, Wheelock College
