This bundle includes the Subitizing Laying the Foundations for Number Sense book and a class set of matched regular dot and number cards.
Developing fluency and addition and subtraction depends on a firm number sense foundation. Firm foundations take time. In this course you will learn a range of processes for firming up this numeracy foundation and ensuring your students do not experience early failure and consequent risk aversion that lead to poor dispositions towards mathematics.
In this Natural Maths course, with Ann Baker, get a range of practical ideas, backed by research, and walks you through the steps you’ll need to take to ensure you are doing the best you possibly can to ensure your students are off to a life of numerosity.
Multiplicative thinking has been shown to be a crucial part in the development of numeracy. This series gives a comprehensive coverage of this topic and is set in the form of a guided enquiry that will enable you to tack your students’ progress as you work the modules with them..
In the early years, subtraction receives very little attention by comparison with addition. This series gives a comprehensive coverage of this topic and is set in the form of a guided enquiry that will enable you to tack your students’ progress as you work the modules with them.
The role that games play in the conceptual understanding of and fluency with subtraction is not to be underestimated. The games presented here allow students to:
Multiplicative thinking has been shown to be a crucial part in the development of numeracy. The mental routines form an ideal introduction to a strategy or problematized situation lesson on this multiplicative thinking.
There are 9 number talk slides, that can be displayed or printed for use by the students. After a few number talk sessions, the students should be encouraged to make their own slides.
There are 10 problematized situations, each on a separate slide, that can be displayed or printed for use by the students. The Lesson Plan gives a framework that can be used with any or all of the problematized situations. We have also included Anchor Charts for the follow-up lesson.
We need to develop flexibility as well as fluency with subtraction and that starts in the early years. The strategy lessons form the first part of a series that gives a comprehensive coverage of this topic.
