Through practical materials and typical daily activity, children are learning math in ways that is sometimes not recognized. This training will connect Language and Literacy to learning mathematical concepts through common practices in early care and education. Progressions in Ohio’s Early Learning Assessment and in Early Learning and Development Standards will also be referenced.
Free Parking is available in the Jefferson Ave. Center parking lot at the SW corner of Long St. and Jefferson Ave. during the day. Permits are required for this lot so please print parking pass available on the Action for Children website (click on “Parking” in “About” section).

Through professional preparation combined with on-going professional development, participants will be able to recognize children's mathematical skills.
Participants will be able to identify specific strategies to use the language of math through literature, conversation, music, and other learning experiences.
Participants will identify at least two examples of how mathematic concepts are present in typical play and daily routines.
Participants will work together to design at least two new learning activities that foster development of understanding mathematical concepts.
