    Product Description

    By Karen Fuson, Douglas Clements, Sybilla Beckmann Kazez

    Series Advisor: Jane F. Schielack

    Focus in Kindergarten: Teaching with Curriculum Focal Points describes and illustrates learning paths for the mathematical concepts and skills of each prekindergarten Focal Point as presented in Curriculum Focal Points for Prekindergarten through Grade 8 Mathematics. It includes representational supports for teaching and learning that can facilitate understanding, stimulate productive discussions about mathematical thinking, and provide a foundation for fluency with the core ideas. This book also discusses common student errors and misconceptions, reasons the errors may arise, and teaching methods or visual representations to address the errors.

    Because learning paths cut across grades, related Focal Points at kindergarten and grade 1 have been included to clarify how prerequisite knowledge in prekindergarten contributes to later understandings.

    Focus in Kindergarten, one in a series of grade-level publications, is designed to support teachers, supervisors, and coordinators as they develop and refine the mathematics curriculum.
