Storytelling Sagas: An Effective Medium for Teaching Early Childhood Mathematics by Beth Casey, Joanne E. Kersh and Jessica Mercer Young

Early Childhood Research Quarterly, v19 n1 p167-172 2004

Keywords: elementary education


This article describes a unique supplementary program that teaches early childhood mathematics (Pre-K to Grade 2), through a series of six problem-solving adventure stories. The mathematics concepts are taught to the children through the medium of oral storytelling sagas in an integrated approach that addresses language arts as well as early childhood mathematics competencies.

Teachers and schools can select from the supplementary books in this series to enrich and address gaps in their present mathematics curriculum based on the most recent NCTM [Principles and Standards for School Mathematics, National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, Reston, VA, 2000] standards recommending a stronger emphasis on geometry, measurement, pre-algebra, and graphing skills
