About Preventing the Numeracy Gap in the Early Years (3rd Oct 2018):
A new workshop with Ann Baker
For the last year Ann has been writing and trialling her 'Prevent the Numeracy gap' initiative with schools.
The focus is on catching students early enough to prevent the widening of the numeracy gap. There is mounting evidence that the sooner we identify and immerse students in and enrich their numeracy the more long term impact we can make.
Ann had developed a 'prevention' scaffold for the early years (Preschool, Foundation, Year 1, although older students can also benefit if they’re struggling to develop numeracy skills).
As always Ann will present practical, classroom based ideas including :
observation guides and strategies
hands on activities
current research and best practice.
