English abstract
Currently there is much discussion internationally about what and how mathematics should be integrated into preschool programs. In Swedish preschools, there is a strong tradition of children’s play. Using video data, we identify how one teacher in a Swedish preschool recognises and builds on mathematical teaching moments that arise from children’s play. The role of respectful listening and asking challenging questions is important in the development of children’s mathematical curiosity. We use this data to explore whether using teaching moments is an appropriate teaching practice in preschools for ensuring that children have good mathematical knowledge to begin school with.
