I’m afraid that this post and the next few to follow are very overdue. It seems like the year is flying by in high speed these days!
On My 7th we spent a wonderful day with math specialist Trevor Calkins. Trevor spent time with each class in the morning. In the K/1 class the students played with the Power of 10 Cards, talked about fact families, and played math games. In the 2/3/4 class Trevor worked on division and in the intermediate class Mr. Calkins worked with three groups on concepts they needed extra support with. The students and the teachers came away with new strategies and ideas we can use as we deepen our understanding of math concepts.
Here are a few pictures from the day:
We also had a great group of parents join Trevor for two evening sessions.
We look forward to the possibility of working with Trevor again next year as we continue with our mathematics inquiry project.
