Making Meaning of Addition and Subtraction
Presenter: Cheryl Fricchione
Grades K – 5 Teachers, Pre-Service Teachers/Educators, Specialists, Math Coaches, Supervisors, District Administrators
Date: Thursday, August 4, 2022 Location: North Hanover Township – Endeavour Elementary School
Using the research from CASEL, participants will explore and discuss the structures that promote SEL in a classroom. We will begin by learning about welcoming rituals. We will talk and demonstrate about engaging classroom strategies that teach the skills outlined in the CASEL Framework. We will look at strategies that teach students these skills both implicitly and explicitly. Finally, we will visit Optimistic Closure for each class. All strategies will be demonstrated using examples from various levels of mathematics, grades 6-12.
Many elementary students use the word “take away” when they are referring to subtraction. But did you know
that this is actually only one model for subtraction? Addition and subtraction are powerful and complex operations that form the foundation of elementary mathematics, yet they are often reduced to a series of steps to memorize. In this workshop, we will make meaning of both operations, explore the trajectory of learning from kindergarten through 5th grade and address how to teach them with depth.
