When test-prep season arrives, it is often a challenge to maintain math communities that focus on sense-making. In this workshop we’ll discuss a problem-solving routine that allows us to review emphasized content while keeping up strong math habits. This routine allows students to develop authentic problem solving strategies while brushing up on the major standards in the Common Core. We have materials for 3rd, 4th, and 5th Grades.
At our session we will...
• try out the problem sets, worked examples, and stamina trials.
• review the 8-week calendar for test preparation for grades 3-5.
• practice meaningful conferring moves that strengthen your students' confidence and abilities as thoughtful problem solvers.
