Problem Solving in Kindergarten

Category: Education

Presentation Description

We have learned through research review and experience that children learn to solve problems by having the process modeled and practiced repeatedly in the classroom. It is important to remember that the correct process is as important as finding the correct solution. This process is referred to when problems are encountered in math as well as life skills. Children also work together weekly to solve a Tricky Thursday problem.
