Getting Kindy and Pre-Primary off to a good start – Mathematics Workshop (North Metro)
Join us for a practical “hands-on” Mathematics workshop with the states leading Mathematics specialist, author and highly sought after speaker.
In this session Paul Swan and Narelle Rice will examine the differences between Kindergarten and Pre-primary mathematics in terms of number. A clearly laid out sequence of tasks and games will be shared to illustrate key features of the sequence. The games for the most part will use dice, counters and 2 cm cubes. A new manipulative called ‘Bondblocks’ will be used in part of the session to show how to move students from simply counting in ones to understanding ideas such as ‘larger number’ and ‘missing number’ as included in on entry testing.
