How can we support our Primary students as they enter Intermediate grades? By looking at the grade 4 math curriculum and tracing the concepts and strategies back down through Primary grades, we can highlight the 'continuum of learning' students need in number sense to grasp the new concepts of large numbers, fractions, decimals, multiplication and division. We'll then try out activities that build number sense - counting collections, number talks, choral counting and math games - that we can use in our classrooms daily. Masters of all activities will be provided.
Elementary school teachers (K-7)
Please bring 2-3 highlighters to the session. Also please copy and bring the Math curriculum 'Continuous Views' located in the Resources below. Masters of all games used will be uploaded after the workshop.
This session is full.
