New: Developing Fluency with Math Games & Activities

Date: 02/28/2017
Time: 8:30 AM to 3:30 PM
Location: EWM Learning Center, 186 Main Street Chatham, NJ 07928
Registration is required

Group is limited to 15 participants.

Register by February 1st and receive one set of our newly designed manipulatives for building fluency for FREE and we’ll waive a certificate fee (Combined value of $45).

Presented by Dr. Yoshida

Pioneer of Lesson Study in the United States, Outstanding Math Educator & Renown International Leader

 

Designed for K-5 Classroom & Special Ed Teachers, Math Specialists and Administrators

 

This newly designed seminar and unique manipulatives are based on Concrete-Pictorial-Abstract pedagogy on which Singapore Math is founded. This seminar offers practical teaching strategies for developing fluency of math facts, mental math and companion manipulatives that you’ll be able to use with your students immediately:

Numerous games & activities for developing mastery of math facts
Painless drills: build math fluency effortlessly
Strategies for increasing mental math skills
Visualization strategies for developing cardinality of numbers
Game centers ready activities
Differentiating your instruction with a wealth of math activities
Formatively assessing students with games

 

Participants will learn how to gamify mathematics learning and immerse their students in the practicing math facts to mastery. Through games, activities and use of manipulatives participants will investigate strategies of helping students visualize, classify, compose, decompose, compare, add, subtract and multiply numbers. Participants will explore subitizing techniques of readily identifying the number of objects in a set without counting. Participants will also explore ways to differentiate instruction and scaffold lessons for struggling learners through implementing game centers that are focused on different areas of math fluency.

 

Special Benefits of Attending - Receive New Manipulatives

These newly designed, kid-friendly and colorful flash mastery cards feature special number combinations and proven patterns for building number sense and fluency of math facts. Each card is color-coded to help you identify areas of strength and weakness. The Master Key is included in the set. There are 7 sets of mastery cards that focus on developing fluency in the following areas: cardinality of numbers to 20; addition & subtraction to 10; addition and subtraction to 20; multiplication set 1: tables of 2, 3, 4 & 5; multiplication set 2: tables of 6, 7, 8, 9 and 1. These flash cards offer children a fun way to master their math facts:

Proven patterns for building fact fluency
Special number combinations
Color coded cards that identify strengths & weaknesses
Game centers ready sets & activities
Consultation Available

 

Dr. Yoshida will be available during the seminar to answer questions and discuss your unique needs of teaching, differentiating and implementing your K-5 math program.

How to develop strong number sense in K-2 with Singapore Math® Primary Mathematics

Date: 04/17/2015
Time: 02:00 to 03:00 PM
Location: Convention & Exhibition Center, 415 Summer St, Boston, MA 02210

Presenter: Jen Shouffler, East West Math LLC

East West Math is inviting you to attend a workshop "How to develop strong number sense in K-2 with Singapore Math® Primary Mathematics."  It will take place in Boston Convention & Exhibition Center on April 17, 2015 at 2 PM as a part of the 2015 NCTM Annual Meeting & Exposition event.

Description:  Through the use of manipulatives and activities, this interactive workshop will give teachers a practical understanding of concrete to pictorial to abstract (CPA) approach.  Teachers will benefit from learning strategies for building strong number sense foundation: composing and decomposing numbers within 10 and regrouping within 20.  These topics are highlighted in the CCSS-M.  Formative and summative assessments will be discussed in the context of practice activities.

Suggested audience: Grades K to 2 teachers, special education teachers and math specialists.

Jennifer Shouffler is a graduate of the math leadership program at Bank Street college. She previously studied secondary education mathematics at Penn State University. Jennifer has been a middle school math teacher, a high school math teacher, a K-12 mathematics supervisor, and now a district administrator for curriculum and instruction in New Jersey.

Ms. Shouffler has been studying international math teaching and learning for the past 15 years. She is particularly interested in math education in Singapore and Japan, and the professional development practice of lesson study. She joined members of Global Educational Research to observe lesson study in Japanese classrooms over two summers. Jennifer returned to help her colleagues translate Japanese elementary mathematics textbooks for grades one through six. Jennifer Shouffler continues to educate parents, teachers, and students through workshops and lessons that make mathematics interesting and meaningful.

Time:  08:30 AM to 03:30 PM
Location: Fordham University Westchester Campus, 400 Westchester Ave., West Harrison, NY, 10604

 

Register by June 1st and receive FREE Registration (a $35 value)

 

 Day 1: August 24, 2015

Morning

How to Build Fluency Skills in Gr. K-2: Participants will explore how students build fluency with a meaningful understanding of addition and subtraction facts through CPA and the use of activities with ten frames and other manipulatives.  The focus will be on the structure of numbers 0 to 20.  We will analyze the fact charts to see how to diagnose student difficulties.

Afternoon

How to Correct Student Misconceptions in Gr. K-2:  Participants will examine student work in order to think deeply about students’ errors and evidence of understanding.  Common misconceptions will be discussed.  We will examine strategies to help diagnose student errors and approaches to help students overcome these obstacles.

 

Day 2: August 25, 2015

Morning

How to Differentiate and Develop Problem Solving Skills in Gr. K-2:  Participants will examine lessons that develop students’ problem solving ability.  We will think about how students at various achievement levels can have access to these problems.  We will discuss the characteristics of problems that allow for differentiation.

Afternoon

World-class Instruction with Board Use in Gr. K-2:  Participants will understand how Asian teachers in top performing countries use the blackboard or whiteboard to develop a clear lesson flow and structure.  Careful use of this tool can help students develop note taking skills and make connections to related mathematical concepts. We will examine pictures of boards in the U.S. and around the world.

 

Check in: 8:00 am to 8:30 am.  All seminars are scheduled from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm.  Space is limited to 30 participants.  Fee includes morning coffee, lunch & personalized certificate of participation.
