Do you need a theme for your next parent and teacher meeting? Are the parents asking a lot of questions? The perfect theme to talk about could be on the development of cognitive and mathematics skills. Why not make it a math night?
Mathematics enables people to develop logical thinking and reasoning strategies in their daily lives. We need numeracy to solve problems and make sense of time, numbers, patterns, and shapes for activities like cooking, reading a map or bill, reading instructions, and even playing sports.
Research has shown that children’s motivation and achievement improves when their parents
or caregivers are involved in their education.
There are many everyday things you can do to encourage mathematical learning. This module will give you specific activities you can do with your child so that she or he will develop a strong foundation in mathematics.
In this module, you will learn about:
• . . . mathematics domain goals in the T.E.K.S Pre-kindergarten Guidelines
• Prekindergarten and Kindergarten T.E.K.S. and Pre-K's Guidelines & Outcomes correlation.

These modules are the perfect way to enhance the parental involvement in your campus.
