August 7th, 2018, 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM: PM1 Concurrent Sessions
Category: Rigorous Developmentally Appropriate Practices: Early Numeracy & Mathematics
Session Description: Counting, cardinality, subitizing and measuring are all things that both artists and mathematicians do. Join us for a hands-on, minds-on exploration of the many ways you can use the arts to help toddlers and preschoolers develop confidence and competence in math to enter kindergarten ready to learn. Arts Impact's model of arts infused learning has been proven to increase kindergarten readiness and close opportunity gaps for children of color and those experiencing poverty.
