Instructor: Kim Ward

            The PreK-5th grade math instructional toolkit sessions are designed to help make sense of children’s mathematics.

The key strategies presented in each of the modules will provide teachers with a variety of tools needed to help develop mathematical thinkers and problem solvers. The modules are specifically designed for novice teachers, GaTAPP teachers, and teachers who have changed grade bands or need a review, as well as Prek-5th grade support teachers. As each of the three modules can stand alone, teachers may register for one module or all three. Each session will provide opportunities to learn more about Mathematical Growth Mindsets, Math & Literature, and Hands-On Math activities.

Below is the menu of modules for PreK-2 and 3-5 teachers. Each module consists of two full-day sessions. You must register for each module that you plan to attend.
