As sung by these endearing Sesame Street muppets, “Math is everywhere.” To make math accessible from an early age, Sesame Street invites all early childhood educators — whether working in a classroom, center-based program, or family child-care setting — to join a free online course, Make Believe with Math.
This self-paced course will enable educators to explore the fun of math in children’s make believe play and to teach how math moments can be incorporated into everyday learning.
The online course will:
- Highlight the importance of math and pretend play in children’s lives
- Explore how a facilitator can integrate “math moments” into children’s pretend play
- Offer an interactive learning experience during which educators can connect with others
Registration is now open for either of the following two sessions. Please note that you can register at any time within these time frames to join the course.
Session 1: May 12th – August 11th
Session 2: October 2nd – January 12th
