In Deanna Pecaski McLennan’s kindergarten classroom, math isn’t limited to a specific block of time. It’s built into the environment and inseparable from everything her young students do.
All of the math in author Deanna Pecaski McLennan's instruction is infused with a sense of exploration, wonder, and joy. And in her new book, Joyful Math, she shows us how to do the same by creating invitations for young children to engage with math ideas through art, literacy, and outdoor play. She focuses on building spaces in early childhood classrooms where children see themselves as mathematical thinkers with valuable ideas from the very start.
