I just wanted to let you know that I used Mokoto Yoshida's stuff in class and it worked beautifully. Plastic egg carton ten frames with unifix cubes, the magnetic counters critical thinking piece worked so well!The kids really got the concepts and enjoyed the process. He is a wonderful presenter: clear, simple, and smart. Gave me new uses for materials I already had.
Good Morning, Greg- I just wanted to thank you for presenting such a professional overview of the Singapore Math Program yesterday. As I mentioned, you gave us a lot to think about as we begin to analyze the various math programs adopted in this area. The teachers really enjoyed looking at the materials that you brought, also this committee included Board Members and parents, and they had not seen the materials that you sent earlier this year.
Dear Greg, What a pleasure to meet with you today! We were impressed by the presentation and the teachers were in agreement that we should proceed further with Singapore.”
We are enjoying our work with Dr. Yoshida. Thank you for helping us with scheduling and logistics.
