Grab 'em With Games: Way More Fun Than An Ordinary Math Class- Grade level K-8 Have you been looking for ways to engage and motivate the students in your math classroom. Then grab ‘em with games. Games provide an enjoyable venue for the repeated practice necessary for mastering basic skills. They can highlight specific mathematics concepts, activate strategic thinking, help develop logical reasoning skills and provide opportunities to review. Spend a day having fun while exploring a variety of games for use in the classroom. These will include invented games and commercial products. Come join in the fun. More

(1, 2,5) Elementary
Cognitively Guided Instruction (CGI) is a problem-solving mathematics program designed to improve number sense and computation for students in Kindergarten through fifth grades. 

This instructional practice increases the rigor and relevance of mathematics and is closely aligned to the eight Mathematical Practice Standards from the KCCRS.

CGI is proven effective for boys and girls of diverse social class, racial, ethnic, and language proficiency backgrounds. It also provides a strong foundation for developing cognitive and technical skills in middle and high school students. NCTM past president, Mary Lindquist, describes the impact of CGI, "In recognizing how students develop mathematically, you may find yourself asking questions . . . You will begin to rethink who can learn mathematics and what it means to learn mathematics . . . You will begin to rethink how you teach mathematics . . ."

 Participation will be limited to 30 participants. Title III funds may be used for this training.

Need a great way to jumpstart your math period?

Looking for strategies that promote accuracy, efficiency, flexibility, and communication in math?

Number Talks is what you have been looking for.

The focus of this training is to increase student engagement through communication around mental math in Kindergarten through 5th grade.

Number Talks provide a structure to promote a safe community for learners while engaging in 5-15 minute conversations around the area of whole number operations. 

We will explore: 
*Designing purposeful conversations 
*Posing good questions following student thinking
*Recording that thinking to make it visible for all students
*Connection to the eight math practices from the KCCRS.

We will spend time practicing these techniques and viewing examples of Number Talks in action. Participants will leave the Number Talks book with sample lessons and videos of various teachers and students using Number Talks in actual instruction. (Title III funds may be used for this training.)

“Fractions both underpin the development of proportional reasoning and are important for future mathematics study, including that of algebra and probability." 

However, fractions remain one of the key stumbling blocks in math education. Students and teachers alike, struggle with the rigor and relevance of fractional concepts. This two day workshop will provide teachers the necessary understanding of stepping stones in developing fractions and decimals as well as appropriate activities and lessons to increase students' fraction sense. Information from Extending Children's Mathematics: Fractions & Decimals: Innovations In Cognitively Guided Instruction, by Empson and Levi, will be shared.

Participants will learn a foundation for understanding fractions and decimals in ways that build conceptual learning, and how this basis of whole number arithmetic can be extended to fractions and decimals. 

Previous work with CGI recommended.

Join Tammy and Renee' and experience a day of rigorous math learning activities aligned to the common core.

Participants will experience quality math tasks and reflect on the connection to the Eight Mathematical Practices. The critical areas that will be addressed are numbers and operations in base ten, numbers and operations in fractions, algebraic reasoning, and geometry. 

Teachers will receive six pre-made stations for their grade band that are ready for immediate use in the classroom. If you have technology available please bring an iPad or laptop to the workshop with you.

Audience: K-6 grade teachers, paras, title, and Special Education Teachers. Title III funds may be used for this training.
