April 4 @ 3:45 pm - 5:15 pm
Conceptual understanding is very important in early Math skills. It is the WHY in Math. If students just learn to memorize facts, they will not be able to use Math to help them understand real life problems. So how do you know where your students are at in their conceptual understanding so that you can plan lessons that are developmentally appropriate? Just like in reading, we want to teach students at their “just right” level in Math.
In this session, we will pick up where the last one left off and will work more closely on the basic conceptual understandings that students need to have in order to move on to the next developmental level in Math. We will do hands on learning and learn games that students will be able to practice in a Math centre for these concepts.
