Designed to accompany Kathy Richardson's series, Developing Number Concepts, this resource book includes comprehensive, ready-to-use, year-long teaching plans along with classroom management ideas.
This guide is not designed to tell classroom teachers what to teach one day at a time. Rather, it is intended to help the classroom teacher present sets of related activities, each for a period of four to eight weeks. Focusing on a particular concept for several weeks helps children to fully develop their understanding of that concept and to gain competence and facility with the mathematics they are learning.
The underlying structure of the "math-time" routine, as described in this guide, gives teachers a practical, reasonable way to respond to children individually as the children work to make sense of the math they are doing.
This is the essential guide for implementing DNC teaching into your classroom!
