Math Is Everywhere! Mathematizing the Early Childhood Classroom with Stories and Routines

Empire D, Hyatt Regency New Orleans

Math is everywhere– you just need to know where to look! This session offers early childhood educators a variety of concrete ways to mathematize their instruction using read-alouds and routines that promote equity. Participants will learn how a shared context can be used to build classroom community, explore math routines, and leave with free resources they can use in their classrooms right away.

Are My Students Fluent? Using Observations and Learning Progressions As Formative Math Assessment to Move Students from Counting to Computation

Bolden 2, Hyatt Regency New Orleans

How do we know our students are fluent with math facts? Simply put, students should know math facts much like they know words in reading—automatically—and when they encounter math facts they don’t know, as in reading, they should use tools and strategies to figure them out. Join us to find out how learning progressions can be a tool to record students’ thinking and progress on the path to fluency.

Punz and Puzzles

Strand 11 A/B, Hyatt Regency New Orleans

Humor is powerful. In the classroom, it has the ability to increase vocabulary, reduce anxiety, and create safe spaces where students will share. Using mathematical puns and puzzles that involve both words and numbers, we'll explore laughing and learning at the intersection of math and literacy. Come prepared to groan, think, and have a good time!

Using Rich Tasks to Promote Greater Student Engagement

Room 12
Effective instruction requires materials that provide entry points and allow students to go deep with mathematics. We’ll consider how these aspects can be embodied in a single mathematical task. Attendees will collaborate to solve problems that promote problem solving and engage all students.
