Number Concept, Number Sense, and Numeracy (PreK-4)

Date: November 16, 2016
Time: 8:30am-3:30pm (workshop begins promptly at 8:30am)

Many children have difficulty learning and automatizing arithmetic facts (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division). In this workshop, we will learn the strategies and process of automatizing arithmetic facts. We believe almost all children can automatize arithmetic facts with strategies that use appropriate materials that match students’ mathematics learning personalities. It is true whether the student is just learning the facts or had struggled with them for several years. We will also discuss how specific learning disability children need specific strategies.
