I will be presenting 2 sessions at the KCM conference held on Monday and Tuesday, March 11 & 12, 2019 at the Marriott Griffin Gate in Lexington, Kentucky. Please join me!
SUBITIZING, which is the ability to instantly recognize the number of items (or
pictures) in a small group without the need to count each one individually, was
termed by Piaget and is an important stage of developing strong
number-sense. During this session, teachers will have the opportunity
to learn numerous activities, that can be implemented immediately in their
classrooms, to help develop strong subitizing skills. The session will be
hands on and attendees will leave with a variety of tools to put in their
Mental Math, Fact Fluency and Problem Solving Activities With Playing
During this fast paced presentation, teachers will be using ordinary playing cards to learn activities that will build mental math skills, fact fluency, and problem solving. Teachers will leave with numerous ideas as simple as 'Making 10' to activities that practice regrouping mentally. The ideas presented in this session can be implemented with little prep-time. Students don't even realize that they are learning while playing these card games.
