A student explains how his classroom’s attendance chart is used. Creating mathematical routines in the classroom can help children make connections between math and their everyday lives.

Focus on the Child videos are taken from one-on-one interviews with individual children. The interviews are designed to elicit evidence of children’s mathematical thinking. They are not teaching episodes or formal assessments.

    Routines are very important for children to provide security and stability. Using charts like daily attendance can help provide examples of early math and are relatable to children because it is something done daily, and it is an authentic way to teach them these math concepts.

    Creating routines is very important for young children. Children will know what is going to happen next, although they do not know the time yet with routines they can predict when their parents wil pick them up and that help them to fell more secure.

    It was wonderful to hear the reasoning and answers of the child. I like having a check in for who is and who is not at school. There is so much that can be done with this chart. (sorting the girls/boys)
