Hi all,

I am in my lasy year at university (studying: BA (Hons) primary teaching with QTS) and have chosen to do my dissertation on 'teaching maths through stories in EYFS and Key stage 1'.

I would be grateful if you have any recommendations for literature to be accessed. Also if you van give your opinions about advantages or disadvantages if any.

Any guidance will be much appreciated.

Kind regards,

Abdul

Hello all,

 

This will be a 5000 word assignment to be handed in May 2016.

I thought it is best that I start early.

Regards,

Abdul

Hi

I attended some training for Year 1 with Mathematics Mastery today.  They use pictures from traditional tales to support and stimulate mathematical discussion.  They might have some useful research for your dissertation.

Good luck

Hi Abdul,

You may want to have a look at a concept called 'Let's visit Numberland', aiming at children as of 4 years of age. It's an approach from Germany which has been in place for ten years now and there are several projects also running in the UK (I could set up some contacts with schools for you).

It is one big story on numbers with individual stories for each number (1 to 10): Together with the children, we visit an imaginary land where the numbers live... We explore how their houses and gardens look like and what items we can place there while talking to the numbers and discussing among each other, singing, playing active games, relating daily routines to it. It is an open concept but offers a structuring and emotional frame.  More info and the research done on it under www.numberland.net  or contact me at barbara@numberland.net

Best wishes,

Barbara

Have you tried searching this website? There is certainly some stuff on here. Also

Go to Scholastic UK and search for articles ‘In the Frame’. These are older articles about maths from stories. http://education.scholastic.co.uk/search/search?log=t&search%5Bmag_id%5D=76680&search%5Bquery%5D=In+the+Frame

Video clips http://www.atm.org.uk/Interactive-Journal---MT218i/mt218i--looking-forward-maths-from-stories/70202

There is a Maths from Stories booklist somewhere on the site, but I cannot recall where!

Scroll back to previous posts in this thread too.

Best wishes for your dissertation.

It is a great idea to teacher children to invent their own stories for number sentences.  This is the process of reification, emphasised by the Freudenthal school of education.
