September 21, 2019, (a Saturday) 9:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. - Numberless Math Word Problems - Seem Counter-Intuitive? - A workshop for elementary teachers

This workshop is open to any elementary teacher in grades 3-5.

  • Do your students struggle with math word problems?
  • Do they quickly scan the words looking for numbers?
  • Are they "number pickers?"

Using numberless word problems, explore ways to strengthen students' ability to solve word problems.  Teach your students to look at different formats of word problems, decipher the action, and use the appropriate operaton to solve.  Teach them to stop ulluing numbers "out of a hat," and, instead, put on their "thinking caps" and understand how to solve word problems.

We will provide morning coffee and snacks.

REGISTRATION FEE: $120.00

November 19, 2019, 8:30 a.m.-3:00 p.m. - From the Ground Up - Building the Necessary Foundation to Develop Strong Number Sense - A workshop for elementary teachers

This workshop is open to any elementary teacher in grades 3-5.

Our goal as teachers is to teach children necessary math skills, so that, as adults, they can comfortably reason through the math they use during their day. To do that we need to build students' number sense. We accomplish this through increasing fact fluency and providing MULTIPLE strategies to perform the four operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Standard algorithms are useful, efficient tools to solve problems, BUT they are not the ONLY algorithms we can use. Come explore alternative strategies and help students learn how to select strategies for a variety of numerical problems.

We will have coffee in the morning; lunch will be on your own.

January 28, 2020, 8:30 a.m.-3:00 p.m. - The Beef Stew of Workshops - Choosing a Variety of "Ingredients" Making a Strong Math Classroom - A workshop for elementary teachers

This workshop is open to any elementary teacher in grades 3-5.

Have you read something in a professional book, journal, or blog; heard another teacher talk about a great teaching idea; or seen a lesson in GADOE Frameworks? Do you want to give one a try, but you aren't really sure how to implement it? Come to this workshop! Just like when you make beef stew, this workshop will have a lot of "ingredients."

We will explore things you may have heard of, wanted to try, did try – but want to tweak. Ideas such as Counting Collections, 3-Act Tasks, Math Running Records, a multitude of Number Sense Routines, questioning, Talk Moves, and more will be the "ingredients" for our stew.

Better yet . . . send us a topic, and we will try to include it in the day. There is nothing better than collaborating with our fellow teachers to understand how to implement a new activity.

April 28, 8:30 a.m.-3:00 p.m. - A Buffet of Activities for the Math Workshop Model - A workshop for elementary teachers

This workshop is open to any elementary teacher in grades 3-5.

        Even if you are already up and running with the Math Workshop model, or if it is a new concept, we will share activities that you can use in your classroom, to energize your students as you finish out the year!

       From a buffet, you can select the food that interests you. Using a Math Workshop model, you can provide your students with different "menu items" that will fill their math minds, strengthen their math muscles, and keep them "seated at the table" for the entire "meal."

       We will look at the Math Workshop model and its components exploring resources and activities. Use these activities for "task and share" and "learning stations" and engage your students in your math lessons.

We will have coffee in the morning; lunch will be on your own.
