Many librarians are comfortable incorporating basic math principles in story time, such as counting, number recognition, and shapes, but what other ways can you incorporate mathematics into your regular story time routine? Join JoAnna Schofield, Cuyahoga County Public Library children’s librarian and former mathematics teacher, to explore easy (and cheap!) ways to explore computation, spatial awareness, geometry, measurement, data collection and interpretation, and more!
Learning Outcomes
  1. Participants will be able to authentically include early literacy math instruction in their regular programming, including story times and passive programming.
  2. Participants will be able to design accurate and energizing math extension activities coupled with math-related picture books.
  3. Participants will be able to plan and deliver more complicated early math literacy instruction, including but not limited to geometry, spatial awareness, and computation.
