Oh, the Math... we know student success in mathematics starts right when our Pre-K's and K's first enter school. Attitudes toward math including curiosity, develop quickly and are shaped by the teachers that plan and teach the necessary concepts that lay the foundation for elementary math. A year of interrupted learning has meant that many of our young students have missed a whole year of play and learning math.


Come prepared to play author Jane Felling's favorite games and learn strategies and best practices for the
following concepts: subitizing, counting, comparing numbers, number concepts including odd/even,
doubles, make 5, make 10, number line count on and back, simple graphs. Whole movement activities tied
to the math, math talks, music integration that provide "brain breaks" will all be shared throughout the
session. Activities are suitable for whole class or center/partner-based instruction. Handouts will include
favorite games, concept skill checklists for assessment, and ideas that can be implemented right away.


All Participants Should Bring...

A deck of cards, 8 regular dice, and a set of dominoes


Who Should Attend...

This session will be of benefit to any Pre K, Kindergarten, and First Grade teachers that need ideas for rebuilding
basic concepts.
