You are to explain ‘The role of the teacher in teaching and learning mathematics in early childhood’ and include the following list of points that must be covered and individually answered. Do not blend as one document. All bullet points need to be answered separately and need to be displayed as bullet points on the PPT. Add the speech section below the slide (please ask if you are unsure what this is). Please do not add anything else other than what is required and only use the sources provided. If you are unsure of anything please ask as I do not want to ask for a revision.

Slide 5. Cover the following 4 points under the heading: The use of assessment when planning and teaching.
•    What is the role of the early childhood teacher in teaching and learning mathematics when using assessment when planning and teaching?
•    Explain what the use of assessment when planning and teaching is.
•    Explain how the use of assessment when planning and teaching relates to teaching mathematics for example: why is it important?
•    Give a specific example of a way to implement the use of assessment when planning and teaching in the early childhood classroom.

The work needs to demonstrate extensive understanding of the role an early childhood teacher has in teaching and learning mathematics. You must show evidence of wide reading and the capability to infer and summarise readings therefore the provided resources need to be used. Here they are:
