Submission Type



Education professionals and researchers have underscored the importance of mathematics education for young children and the awareness that young children can learn early mathematics concepts that serve as a foundation for later years. The need for teachers to support individual needs for some children to build their conceptual understanding is clear as many children show deficits during kindergarten while others are ready to advance to the next areas of instruction. One way to meet the needs of children who need more work in foundational areas of mathematics is to utilize technology within filling stations in the classroom. To this end, this article discusses ways to expose children to more work in basic concepts and skills in mathematics through the use of a filling station with technology supports for children to work on foundational skills.
