We invite you to join your friends at Sesame Street for a FREE online course for early childhood educators Make Believe with Math.  This self-paced course is designed for all early childhood educators–whether you are working in a classroom, center-based program, or family child-care setting.  This self-paced course will enable educators to explore the fun of math in children’s make believe play and 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

Our goal is to reach any early childhood educator who might benefit from this material and we know you support many of these educators in your work!

 

We prepared a Partner Package for you to make sharing easier, including:

  *   Pre-drafted language you can send out through your newsletter, e-blasts, or more

  *   Sample tweets or Facebook posts you can share via social media

  *   Sesame Street art assets that you can include in your communications
