Windows, Mirrors & Doors: The Joy of Math Literacy – Nov 16

Posted by ParentChild+ on November 8, 2022

Join us next week, on 11/16, for the next installment of ParentChild+’s virtual series Windows, Mirrors, & Doors, where children’s book authors, educators, and advocates will lead us in a compelling discussion on math access and inspiration in children’s literature. The discussion will focus on math literacy and will shine a light on the impact that representation in books about math concepts, diverse mathematicians, and math all around you has on the well-being and social-emotional development of children. It will highlight the importance of all children and families seeing themselves in books about math, learning about math in joyful, playful, and meaningful ways, and making it a regular part of their early learning experiences.

The main themes of this discussion will include:

  • How we can have rich conversations with our children about diversity and inclusion, early and often, through math books and play?
  • Why math literacy is especially important in children’s literature and school readiness?
  • How the intersection of early math and early literacy can be joyful and playful for children and adults?

At ParentChild+, we believe representation and book selection can be a powerful step toward building a stronger, more equitable world.

When: Wednesday, November 16 | 6:30pm – 7:30pm
