The way of thinking about childcare |

1_1 When doing childcare, I emphasize the daily life in order to protect the health and safety of children. |

1_2 When doing childcare, I emphasize the educational aspect in order to realize “the state which you want children to grow up by the end of early childhood”. |

Understanding about Basis of Mathematics |

2_1 I understand the contents of “Quantities and Figures” in the course of study for Kindergarten. |

2_2 I understand the contents of “Sense of quantity and figures” in the course of study for Kindergarten. |

2_3 I understand the written content about “mathematics” in the course of study for elementary schools. |

2_4 I understand that there is an experience that become Basis of Mathematics in the play of children. |

2_5 I understand the mathematics behind the play that become Basis of Mathematics. |

2_6 I understand the development about children’s cognition of number, quantity and shape. |

Understanding about children, play and childcare |

3_1 Interested in mathematics education in early childhood. |

3_2 In early childhood education, the experience that forms Basis of Mathematics is important. |

3_3 It is necessary to acquire Basis of Mathematics through the guided play. |

3_4 It is necessary to acquire Basis of Mathematics through the non-guided play. |

3_5 It is necessary to learn Basis of Mathematics not only through play but also from daily activities in the kindergarten. |

3_6 In order for children to make a discovery Basis of Mathematics, they need the support of preschool teachers. |

3_7 As Basis of Mathematics, it is important to have a way of thinking to grasp their daily life mathematically. |

3_8 Mathematics terms may be taught according to the children’s interests. |

3_9 Mathematics tools may be given according to the children’s interests. |

Practice of childcare |

4_1 I can make a childcare plan can be planned in consideration of the “link between play and mathematics”. |

4_2 I can set the environment to be a play that also leads to Basis of Mathematics. |

4_3 Depending on the degree of recognition of the children, I can devise support so that it also leads to Basis of Mathematics. |

4_4 In the play, can read the play of children that leads to Basis of Mathematics. |

4_5 Depending on the children’s play, can give advices that leads to Basis of Mathematics. |

4_6 Depending on the children’s play, I can create an environmental constitution that leads to Basis of Mathematics. |

4_7 When doing childcare, I can read the play of children that leads to “collecting things of the same properties”. (Matching) |

4_8 When doing childcare, I can read the play of the children that leads to “dividing into groups focusing on differences”. (Sorting ) |

4_9 When doing childcare, I can read the play of the children that leads to “comparing from the viewpoint of same, big, and small”. (Comparing) |

4_10 When doing childcare, I can read the play of the children that leads to “arranging in order of size”. (Ordering) |
