Jaguars Present at the Texas School Ready Conference
Early Childhood Graduate Students presented a session to over 50 early childhood educators at the Texas School Ready Conference held here in San Antonio. Texas A&M University-San Antonio students shared ideas for creating math backpacks that help families promote mathematic knowledge and skill development in their child.
Christela Caldera, Christina Calvario, Ana Cardona, Frances Garza, Shauna Harris, Ameila Henderson, Maria Ortega, Leticia Salinas, and Dawn Silva each shared their own ideas for creating a backpack that families can take with them into the community to places like the grocery store, zoo and park. The backpacks are filled with fun games and ideas for encouraging children's mathematical thinking.
