About the Session

In this workshop participants will learn:

  • How to adapt commonly found math manipulatives so that students and their caregivers can do the math activities at home.
  • How to close the achievement gaps and rebuild the months of learning students have lost due to Covid.
  • How to differentiate the games and activities to meet the wide range of student needs in your virtual classrooms.
  • How to use games and activities for assessment purposes in virtual settings.
  • How to develop math journals to help capture student work.

During the workshop participants will play a variety of hands-on games and activities and learn teaching strategies that incorporate the use of easily found cards and dice – manipulatives that families can have on hand at home. Concepts covered will include operational fluency and place value. The handout will include new assessment checklists, journal masters and gameboards. Come prepared to play and be engaged!
