Description:

In this session, teachers will be introduced to key skills and understandings that contribute to strong number sense. Number sense enables children to be flexible, automatic and fluid with numbers so they can be efficient and strategic problem solvers. Participants will consider big ideas and strategies that young children need to explore on their journey of learning about numbers, subitizing, counting, and unitizing. Teachers will learn how to apply this knowledge in assessing what children know — and what they need to know next.
