01/31/2017

SLI worked with Baltimore City School's Office of Early Learning to share research on developing skills that are important for math and science learning.


SLI's Kristin Gagnier partnered with Baltimore City School's Office of Early Learning to bring research on the building blocks of mathematical and scientific thinking to kindergarten teachers. Research has shown that spatial thinking skills are important to students’ interest and achievement in the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields.  Kristin shared this research and strategies for facilitating the development of these skills in young children to a group of 200 Baltimore City kindergarten teachers.
