Engagement
Bringing Math to Life: Grades 1–2

    

Ready to put some zing in your math class? Are you looking for fresh ideas to scaffold learning so that all students understand math deeply? Bringing Math to Life will provide you with practical, easy-to-implement tools. During the workshop, we will focus on problem types, understanding word problems, fluency, and geometry. 

Outcomes
Participants will leave with simple strategies and classroom resources that they can use with their student, and a deeper understanding of the vertical alignment that drives scaffolding.

Audience
1st and 2nd grade math teachers, special education math teachers, interventionists, instructional coaches, and other math instructional leaders
