A Message From Your Seminar Leader
Development and understanding of number sense is vital to students’ understanding the depth of our number system. Strong number sense correlates to strong understanding of our base-ten system and algebraic thinking. I have designed this seminar to provide you with new instructional strategies that promote thinking and reasoning. You will receive hands-on activities that deepen students’ understanding and will help your students meet and exceed the Common Core standards for number sense. I will provide you with a variety of strategies so you CAN meet all the needs and learning styles of the students you teach daily.
I am very excited to share with you classroom-tested ideas that you will be able to adapt into your classroom and into your current math program – ideas I have successfully used with my own K-2 students. Throughout the day, we will learn to engage students in many independent, partner, small group, and whole group activities and lessons designed for developing strong number sense. I enjoy using literature as part of my math lessons, so some “old favorites” and newly released titles will be used throughout the day. And, of course, there is always the concern of assessments so I will provide formative and summative assessment ideas specifically designed for grades K-2 that can be put to immediate use.
Just some of the ideas to be presented include:
- How to use number sense as a method to compose and decompose numbers
- How to create a classroom where students make connections to other mathematical concepts using number sense
- Practical and creative activities that can be easily implemented in any K-2 classroom
- Specific ways to boost students’ self-confidence in mathematics – beginning with number sense
Yes … It promises to be a busy, fun-filled day! Please join me for a day filled with practical ideas and suggestions that will enhance your K-2 students’ number sense.
P.S. The day will focus on practical strategies you can use immediately in your own classroom.
