A Message From Your Seminar Leader
Without a doubt, the mathematics skills required in your state standardsset much higher standards for students in grades 3-5 than ever before. It is essential that we fully engage our students in mathematics in ways that will help them develop the skills they need to meet or exceed your state standards in number sense, computational fluency, fractions, problem solving, and reasoning. This involves learning powerful mathematical ideas, rather than a collection of disconnected procedures for carrying out calculations. This seminar will give you dozens of ideas and a wealth of practical strategies to do just that!
Throughout the day, we will look at the most effective instructional practices and timesaving techniques to differentiate lessons in mathematics to help our students meet or exceed the new math standards – a big challenge for those of us who work with intermediate grade students. I will share many powerful, classroom-proven techniques that are highly effective in helping us meet our students’ needs while addressing the depth required by your state standards. One of the most effective ways to do this is by supporting deep understanding of essential math concepts with the use of visual models that enable our students to develop strong number sense and numerical reasoning skills.
Please plan to join me for a fast-paced day, filled with engaging, ready-to-use ideas. It is my goal that you leave this seminar with a wealth of strategies and practical ideas you can easily implement in your classroom instruction. I look forward to meeting you and sharing my ideas and experiences during our day together. You will leave with a new repertoire of highly useful strategies and engaging lessons that will support you and all of your students as you deepen their understanding of the skills and concepts required by your state standards.
