RUSMP's Robin Ward presents at Early Literacy Summit hosted by Rice School Literacy & Culture!

Robin Ward, RUSMP Director of Curriculum Integration, presented at the 2017 Early Literacy Summit. The theme of the summit was "The Heart of the Matter: Relationship and Imagination in Early Childhood Education." Robin's presentation was titled "Put on Your Math Goggles! Seeing Math in Art (While Energizing Imaginations)." 

This year's offerings explored the vital significance of building positive relationships with students in the classroom and with parents as educational partners. The foundational role that imagination plays, not only in creative thinking, but in developing symbolic thought necessary for reading and writing was highlighted. View the 2017 program here.
