Teaching concepts of chance to early years ESL students

Olivia Clarke, Louise  Bowe
This week's article reports on the experience of two Grade 1–2 teachers at Debney Meadows Primary School, Victoria, who introduced mathematical concepts of chance to young students with English as a second language. Many of the children came from refugee backgrounds and had little or no formal school experience. Learning Objects provided by The Le@rning Federation (TLF) were integral to the work, which formed part of a joint project between the TLF and the Victorian Department of Education and Early Childhood Development.
