With the new Common Core State Standards, many educators have questions about how to provide math activities for students who are performing below grade level while simultaneously addressing the Common Core State Standards. In this webinar from edWeb’s PreK-3 Digital Learning community, presenters shared engaging math games for the iPad and physical math activities that can be used for instruction and student learning in inclusive pre-k, kindergarten, and first grade classrooms. Attendees learned who is at risk for math difficulties, underlying risk factors, how to build a solid foundation for early math using iPad apps, and more.
