Hi, Haim,

Elizabeth Green did a nice follow up article:
http://parenting.blogs.nytimes.com/2014/07/23/5-ways-to-help-your-kid-not-stink-at-math/?emc=edit_tnt_20140728&nlid=12742702&tntemail0=y
Her item 5 mentions the math ed researcher Tom Carpenter. It would
be good for you to learn more about the Cognitively Guided Instruction
that he and others developed. I just discovered and began looking at
the wikipedia article on it:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cognitively_Guided_Instruction

My main interest these days is early math. I work with parents using
the materials described at blockfest.org in ways that parallel what
Ms. Green says. Similar ideas are discussed at
http://www.parentingscience.com/preschool-board-game-math.html

Until 2009 I didn't know there was any such thing as a preschool math
curriculum, but then I bought a prepublication copy of the book
described at http://www.nap.edu/catalog.php?record_id=12519 and read
it cover to cover. The following July this report was referenced in
Washington State's Early Learning Plan.

Bill
