On Wednesday, May 7, Math Coach Kelly Rowan, Kindergarten Teacher Ali Basu, and Principal Intern Elizabeth Nolan conducted a parent workshop, “Math: Beyond Paper and Pencil.”  This workshop was designed for all Pre-K, JK, and K parents/families to introduce and model activities to build math skills. The activities and games that were presented are designed to build math skills such as: counting, addition/subtraction, comparing numbers, understanding the relationship between numbers and quantities, pairing objects with one number, and representing addition and subtraction with objects.

Six parents and grandparents attended and learned how to play math games using objects like playing cards, pasta, and M&M’s! Following the workshop, the families brought home a “goody bag” with ten-frames, math games, playing cards, and some pasta that could be used as manipulatives. Ms. Rowan, Ms. Basu, and Ms. Nolan are planning to conduct a similar workshop this fall. Be on the lookout for the “save the date.”
