A Message From Your Seminar Leader
The Common Core standards in mathematics offer us an exciting opportunity to actively engage our students in mathematics and sustain their learning. In this fast-paced seminar, we will explore powerful ways to make these standards come alive for our students. We will engage in hands-on, minds-on, stimulating activities that explore the five domains of the Common Core standards for grades 3-5 and I will give you the tools, strategies and confidence to put the standards fully into practice in your own classroom.
During our day together – focused strictly on practical ideas you can use tomorrow – we will look at the five elements of mathematical proficiency and learn specific ways in which we can teach our students to have conceptual understanding, procedural fluency, strategic competence, adaptive reasoning, and a strong mathematical disposition. We will also look at various ways to ensure that our students learn the eight mathematical practices through standards-based, rigorous, engaging activities across the domains of grades 3-5. In addition, we will spend time looking at highly successful techniques to teach problem solving, as defined by the Common Core standards, focusing on how to teach students to find “solution pathways” instead of jumping to the “solution attempts.”
It is my pleasure to share a wealth of proven ideas for creating, organizing and managing highly successful Common Core standards-based math activities. You will receive specific techniques, instantly usable ideas and timesaving ways to help your students master the Common Core math standards. In addition, you will see proven ways to make every student feel confident while making math comprehensible, engaging and fun.
I look forward to having you join me for an exciting, worthwhile, teacher-centered seminar that will enable you to put the standards into practice in your own grades 3-5 classroom. I will give you dozens of games, math projects and practical, rigorous, ready-to-use activities that you can implement immediately.
Please join me for an exciting day of practical, proven, “right back to your classroom” ideas that will support you and each of your students as you begin to tap into the excitement, energy and enthusiasm of teaching the rigorous Common Core standards in math.
