We know that elementary students are struggling with math now, more than ever before. New approaches to teaching math that engage and excite students are critical to overcoming profound disruptions in learning due to COVID-19.
This edWebinar shares research-based strategies that build a love for math through characters, stories, games, and lessons. Learn how these engaging methods can also foster strong conceptual learning, flexible strategy use, and better understanding of the math practice standards.
Families are such an important part of children’s learning, but often struggle to know how to help with math. The presenters also share family-friendly resources that extend math learning and foster a positive mindset at home. Engaging families through math games and stories can help reinforce skills learned at school and minimize homework frustrations.
By viewing this edWebinar, you learn about the research on early mathematical thinking and walk away with new ideas, easy-to-implement lessons, free games, and other ways to help ALL your learners see themselves as successful mathematicians!
This recorded edWebinar is of interest to K-5 teachers, school and district leaders, education technology leaders, and math and curriculum specialists.
