Math Facts - Talking With Children (Kindergarten Resource)

When adults engage with children as they solve mathematics-related problems, the dialogue that takes place helps children to develop greater understanding of mathematical concepts. Adults can help children to shape and articulate their thoughts, reinforce oral language, and develop mathematical vocabulary, by listening and responding to what children say. When they provide ample time for children to initiative conversation and respond to questions, adults demonstrate respect for the children’s thoughts, opinions, ideas and wonderings.
