**Practical Activities for Teaching Young Mathematicians**

**(PreK-1)**

*Carolyn Kisloski & Dr. Jean Feldman*

This is the second in the series of "recipe" books from Dr. Jean. Written in collaboration with Carolyn Kisloski, the colorful book is full of engaging, easy-to-follow recipes for math activities. The activities focus on the five domains outlined in the Common Core math standards (Counting and Cardinality, Operations and Algebraic Thinking, Number Operations and Base Ten, Measurement and Data, and Geometry) and fits seamlessly into any classroom. The activities can be used for large group activities, small group activities, partner work, or independent learning. Teachers can turn to them for transitions, brain breaks, or whenever they have five extra minutes in the day and want to make them count. Most of the lessons don`t require advanced preparation or special materials, and all can be differentiated to meet the needs of the learners in any classroom. The recipes fit right into any existing math program. Teachers can open this book and quickly find an idea that they can adapt to their standards and the specific skills that they want to reinforce.
