About this event

January 19th: Foundations of Number Sense: Multiplication/Division (3-5)

Feeling overwhelmed with all of the different ways to solve multiplication and division problems in the 21st century? Why can’t we just do it the way we learned, with one answer and only one way to find it? Join Shannon to transform the way you think about solving multiplication and division problems and helps you enable your students to explain their thinking in multiple ways. Participants will create a toolkit of strategies to help implement various means of solving multiplication and division problems (3 ways plus the traditional, with concrete-pictorial-abstract means) in your classroom tomorrow!

Recommended for: 3-5th grade classroom teachers, special education teachers, and math interventionalists

February 16th: Fractions

Help students build strong conceptual understanding as you learn to implement fraction instruction based on a variety of visual models, concrete manipulatives, and hands-on activities. During this workshop, teachers will understand the progression of fraction instruction and learn how to build a foundational understanding of fractions before advancing to algorithms and abstract equations. Participants will leave with strategies for alternative methods of computing fractions and a full collection of activities and games designed for purposeful practice. Recommended 3rd – 5th grade classroom teachers, special education teachers, and math interventionists.

PAST SESSIONS

October 13th: Numeracy Development

Once your students have memorized the 10 frame and can subitize like rockstars in one modality, what happens when you show 10 in a scatter or on the top row of a Rekenrek? If they go back to one-to-one counting, this workshop is for you! Join Shannon & Dotson as she helps you change the way you think about numeracy development with young children. This foundational workshop will equip you to support your students as they learn to understand and explain their own thought processes, implement numeracy chats in the classroom, and discover fun numeracy games and activities that can be implemented tomorrow! Recommended for Parents, PK-2nd grade classroom teachers, special education teachers, and math interventionists.

November 17th: Addition Strategies with The Math Mights

Feeling overwhelmed with all of the different ways to solve addition problems in the 21st century? Why can’t we just do it the way we learned, with one answer and only one way to find it? Join Shannon & The Math Mights to transform the way you think about solving addition problems and help you enable your students to explain their thinking in multiple ways. Participants will create a toolkit of strategies to help implement various means of solving addition problems (3 ways plus the traditional, with concrete-pictorial-abstract means) in your classroom tomorrow!
