Science and Math Integrating Literacy in Early Childhood
INTRODUCTION The Science and Math Integrating Literacy in Early Childhood (SMILE) DVD highlights science, math, and literacy research-to-practice early childhood information and experiences that emerged from a four-year National Science Foundation-funded PreK/K Leadership Institute. The institute trained early childhood educators from three UCI Center for Educational Partnership PreK-12 partnership districts in Compton, Costa Mesa, and Santa Ana. The leadership institute was facilitated by the California Reading and Literature Project in collaboration with California Science Project and Irvine Math Project leaders in the UCI Center for Educational Partnerships.
