This page provides examples of math center activities aligned with the Early Childhood Assessment in Mathematics (Board of Education of the City of New York, 2001; State Education Department) continuum for numeration. These activities can be used by teachers or parents to support students' progress within a stage or to promote movement to the next stage on the continuum.
For more information on using these centers in your classroom see the ECAM Centers page.
