Games and Routines for Building Number Sense and Fluency

Games and Routines for Building Number Sense and Fluency

Presenter: Robyn May

Date: May 4, 2021

One of the biggest concerns teachers of mathematics have is that many students have little number sense and are not fluent in adding and subtracting. These skills are crucial to a student’s future success in mathematics, so it’s important to build a strong foundation in PreK – 2nd Grade. We will explore a medley of engaging math games and math routines that will have your students learning and having fun. Chances are – you’ll have fun too!

Why Kids Learn from Examples (and why other times they don’t)

Why Kids Learn from Examples (and why other times they don’t)

Presenter: Michael Pershan

Date: April 20 2021

Why is it that sometimes students learn from the examples presented in class, and other times they don’t? In this session we’ll answer this question with ideas from research and classroom experiences. Here’s the short version: when students think deeply about something, they’re likely to learn from it. We’ll discuss how to engineer this sort of deep thinking in practice.

Making Student Thinking Visible: Replacing Math Tests with Math Chats in a Remote Learning Environment

Making Student Thinking Visible: Replacing Math Tests with Math Chats in a Remote Learning Environment

Presenter: Kristen Emmel

Date: March 15, 2021

Do you love a good number talk? What if we could make our math assessments less like a traditional test and more like a math chat? In this presentation we will investigate how to leverage technology to help us make our assessments match our classroom routines (even in a remote setting). Discover how Math Chats can provide students with the opportunity to make their thinking visible with multimedia responses. Watch how teachers can gain a deeper understanding of student misconceptions through dynamic interview-style assessments. During our time together we will look at sample tasks and student responses, discuss the power and flexibility of scoring assessments on a 1-point rubric, and how to use Math Chats as a progress monitoring tool.
