September 1, 2012

An article from Dr. Patrick McGuire's dissertation was highlighted on the Child Care & Early Education(Research Connections) website. Dr. McGuire states, "The article is designed to help teachers improve their ability to teach young children mathematics." Dr. McGuire discusses Five-frames which are used to create a visual representation for numbers; these can be interactive for young children. Using five-frames as an instructional tool can facilitate mathematical learning and development. Specifically, the ability to physically manipulate the five-frames support counting and the development of number sense for children in pre-kindergarten. If you have questions or would like more information about the use of Five-frames, contact Dr. McGuire
