In our opening session, we will take a look at the foundational skill progressions. We will examine the sequential nature of elementary math skills, take a closer look at each core skill strand, and discuss how to use this knowledge to inform our instruction in the classroom.
This session will begin with an overview of the Concrete-Representational-Abstract instructional model and effective manipulatives + scaffolds to support our work. We will then examine how number talks and number sense activities can strengthen student math foundations. This session will conclude by examining ways in which all of these activities can be incorporated into classroom instruction to ensure a solid foundation in math for all students.
This session will focus on building strong conceptual foundations for students in each of the four operations. We will then take a look at the fact fluency progressions, how to identify where students may be along them, and how to leverage student thinking to build fluency through small group strategy shares.
In this session, we will explore building strong conceptual foundations for students in place value. We will then examine how to build on this foundation to support student work in the areas of computation, comparing, and rounding.
In this closing session, we will examine how to use this content knowledge across grade levels to flexibly support students in the classroom. We will explore approaches for identifying where students are along the foundational math skill progressions and look at effective ways to strengthen foundations in math for all students all year long.
