This may be a dream come true (or not) for all you math teachers having difficulty teaching young children. The guide is designed for preschoolers and kindergartners. Teaching Math to Young Children was funded by the U.S. Department of Education's Institute of Education Sciences. Five best practices are listed and step-by-step instructions are included for carrying out each of the recommendations. Now if only there would be a guide for older students! Perhaps it will happen. Let's hope.
