		Accelerating Number Sense through Routines and Games in Grades K-2 image

Are you concerned your K-2 students may have missed the opportunity to build true number sense through the challenging circumstances last year?

Unfortunately, “students who fail to acquire the pieces that make up number sense as early as kindergarten are at the greatest risk for failure in mathematics in the long term” (Witzel et al., 2013).

Teaching from a textbook alone makes it very difficult to develop this firm foundation as well as address any unfinished learning. Engaging students in math games as well as daily routines can help make up this lost ground and build their comfort with numbers.

Participants in this course will engage in modeled, research-based and classroom tested instructional practices that aim to develop students’ conceptual understanding and procedural fluency. Teachers will be introduced to routines including quick images and number talks as well as the use of ten frames and rekenreks. Various games to support number sense will also be examined and played. Time will be allotted for teachers to discuss how these routines and games can be woven into their current curriculum. To capitalize on children’s and teachers’ interest in literacy, several activities will be provided which relate to popular children’s literature. Layered throughout the course will be attention to instructional techniques including classroom discourse, collaborative learning, and formative assessment. Reflection time will be provided for participants to discuss how these ideas will impact their classroom practice.
