Abstract : Although the trends seem to be shifting, researchers have given far less attention to the work of teaching mathematics in kindergarten than to children-s learning. This paper aims at contributing to this underdeveloped area by focusing on one particular task of teaching mathematics: asking productive mathematical questions. From analysis of a situation that involves Lego play, we attempt to decompose the different kinds of mathematical questions asked and thus contribute to the further conceptualization and understanding of this particular task of teaching mathematics in kindergarten.
