No More Math Anxiety
January 17, 2017
If you can dream it, you can do it. Always remember, this whole thing was started by a mouse.
-Walt Disney

"I have heard many teachers in early childhood programs joke about their math anxiety. I have heard stories of students in early childhood degree programs who do not finish their degrees because of the math requirement," observes Heather Wenig in the Exchange Beginnings Professional Development Workshop on Math.

"Helping teachers to recognize and celebrate the ways they are already, often unconsciously, building math concepts in their classroom inspires confidence and dispels myths they have created about themselves and math." Wenig recommends "recognizing teachers' 'moments of effectiveness' and articulating for them the impact that moment has on children’s learning." Here's an example Wenig shares: "This morning I heard you giving Nola verbal directions to find the shelf where the puppets belong. Did you know that you were giving her practice with geometry? You helped her develop her ideas of spatial relationships."
