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

Day 1: August 19, 2019

Morning

Topic: Singapore Math Number Sense with Activities & Manipulatives

This workshop will focus on how to use Singapore Math resources to develop strong Number Sense in K-2. Participants will learn about how to help young students understand numbers through discussing and exploring number story situations with manipulatives. Mathematical ideas are best understood when students see a need for their use. The story problem situations help students see relevant uses of math concepts to make sense of what they are learning. They expose students to the major concepts of mathematics as they arise naturally in story problem situations. Participants will explore a variety of such number story situations with use of Singapore Math resources, activities, and manipulatives.

Afternoon

Topic: Math Games, Activities, Fluency & Assessments

Participants will learn engaging games and activities for helping different style and abilities learners practice math facts to mastery. Strategies will be shared for accommodating visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learners via games and activities with the color-coded method for mastering math facts. Participants will use the color-coded flash cards to play in teams; search for and identify patterns; organize related groups of facts; collaborate during activities; engage in conversation about games; color facts learned and to be learned; demonstrate games in front of a class. Participants will identify strategies designed to increase learner engagement and purposeful collaboration that allow for rigorous and equitable mathematics instruction. 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.

Day 2: August 20, 2019

Morning

Topic: Teaching for Problem Solving & Developing Deep Understanding with CPA

Participants will learn how to:

  • teach story problems in math classrooms using CPA
  • facilitate discussions to teach for deep understanding of math concepts
  • use the CPA approach to construct student understanding in a variety of problem situations
  • make connections between manipulatives and bar models
  • use math journals to teach for understanding and formatively assess students

Afternoon

Topic: Place Value System, Mental Math and Multi-digit Addition & Subtraction

Participants will learn how to:

  • help students understand place value system using manipulatives and place value charts
  • practice mental math strategies to develop fluency & deep understanding
  • engage in relevant activities & games
  • elicit students’ prior knowledge to help develop multi-digit addition and subtraction strategies
  • compare multi-digit numbers with understanding of relative relationships (e.g., 1,000 is made of 10-hundreds or 100-tens)
  • help students understand the process of multi-digit addition and subtraction calculations with use of manipulatives

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 lunch & personalized certificate of participation.
