Improving Student Achievement in Kindergarten Math

Attention kindergarten teachers!
  • How can we develop lessons and common assessments to ensure students are actively engaged and developing a deep understanding of mathematical concepts?
  • How do we know what is the “right” stuff to teach?
Improving Student Achievement in Kindergarten Math is a two-day workshop series will focus on planning effective lessons and assessments using the 5E instructional model to improve student success in elementary mathematics. You will bring your textbooks and curriculum documents and you will leave with at least one lesson (and corresponding assessments) that focus on teaching for understanding. This series provides you with opportunities to carefully analyze corresponding GLCE, to use a model to develop lesson plans that include effective instructional strategies, to develop or select the activities and resources you need to implement your planned lessons, and to select formative and summative assessments to track your students’ progress.
