KINDERGARTEN: RECAP & REVIEW

What have we done so far in Math?

Our vision for our students:

“Mathematically proficient students blend their knowledge of math content with their ability to apply that knowledge to solve problems, communicate math ideas, justify solutions, model math concepts, and reason to make sense of mathematics”

Goals for Today

1. Review Practices # 1 & 6

2. See "What Good Looks Like" from your colleagues

3. Going from closed to open ended questions

4. Getting more comfortable with Number Talks

4. Resources & next steps

Practices # 1 and # 6

Today our focus is on the two practices that should be present everyday in your lessons: effective problem solving and precision in mathematical calculations and communication . The other practices are used as tools and strategies to support our students' conceptual and procedural skills.

View several videos of our Kindergarten students doing number talks!

Take some time to view the movies that are great samples of beginning steps for number talks in our kindergartens! Kudos to those that are trying this!

It's all in the wording! Change your teaching by changing your questions!

Read and reflect on this article and practice changing some questions in your math text from closed ended to open ended to spark sharing and discussion.

Don't give answers, ask the right questions! Teachers can build student thinking with these questions:

First, you be the model! Then have students begin to ask some of these questions.
