FREE 5-Day training via email & Facebook Live.
If you've taught strategies to your students and they are still counting on their fingers the problem is that strategies can't be taught, they are caught.
But how do you help students catch a strategy???
You create experiences that help them see connections.
Number Talks are a great way to help your students catch strategies.
Join me as I work with a 1st grade child over 5 days to help him catch the "Make 10" strategy.
You will be given all the Number Talks I use so that you can work with a student in your classroom during the 5 days as well.
Hi, I'm Christina Tondevold, the facilitator of this free training.

What: Free training each day to show you how to use Number Talks in your classroom. You will be given all the number talks I used so you can try it out with a student in your classroom who is struggling.
When: January 21 - 26, 2018
Where: Live Facebook Videos each day (links provided via email)
Why: Because your students need it
Just because a kid gets older or goes to the next grade level, doesn't mean they get better at their fact fluency.
In fact, they often get worse because there are more & more math concepts they need to learn but they don't have a solid foundation to help them.
Often we don't take the full amount of time to work on fact development because we have all the other grade level standards to teach as well.
Then the next grade teacher is under the same pressure to teach all the standards and so on with each grade level after.
So, when does it stop and we say enough is enough?!?!
You have so much content at your grade level to "cover" but what are the truly important and non-negotiable items that you really want your kiddos to develop before they leave your classroom????
If you don't slow down and spend time ensuring your students have those, then who will? Yes, that probably means letting go of some other things right now, but...
If not you, then WHO?
