Learning Math Together

Learning Math Together is a parent program that WMHT adapted from a research-based curriculum, developed and designed by PBS Ready To Learn program, funded by the U.S. Dept. of Ed and CPB. Research was conducted by WestEd.  

Goals:

  • Involve and engage families in preschool children’s learning
  • Introduce preschool children (ages 3-5) to mathematics concepts through the use of technology (PBS KIDS online games, videos) and hands-on activities and books

Program Format:

  • Series of 8 weekly sessions.  Each 90 minute weekly session focuses on a specific math concept; includes demonstration and hands-on practice with math– themed PBS KIDS games, videos, activities, and books.
  • Families are lent laptops for 8 weeks
  • Family toolkits with take-home resources to be used as “homework”
  • Train-the-trainer model: staff from the site attends all sessions in preparation for delivering the next parent program
