By popular request, Ann is running two workshops in January.
January 16th An Introduction to Natural Maths
If you are new to teaching or if you are a relief teacher, or if you just need a NM refresher, then this workshop will give you insights into the philosophy, strategies and pedagogy involved in implementing and Natural Maths-inspired maths program. This workshop focuses on:
- Mental routines and matched vocabulary
- Mental computation strategies and methods of representation
- Problematized situations
- Reflection strategies
These topics are all aligned with the Australian Curriculum Mathematics Proficiency Strand and TEFL.
January 19th: Numeracy in the Early Years
If you are an Early Years teacher wanting to ensure that your students develop a strong number sense and positive disposition towards mathematical thinking right from the start, then this is the workshop for you. It will be a very active, hands-on workshop, so please brig a playful and curious mindset with you!
One of the activities that had everyone enthralled at the last workshop for Early Years was Capture and you can download a description mof the activity right now.
