“Number sense cannot be taught, it must be caught.” Research tells us that games are a great tool to help children in PK-2 classes develop strong number sense. In this 3-hour, active workshop we’ll explore Big Ideas about Number including the variety of ways numbers are used and what it means to “know” a number. Participants will also experience how math games increase access, motivation, and learning as we play a variety together and discuss variations to fit our children’s learning needs. Pk-2 educators of all experience levels are welcome!
