Feedback form is now closed.
Join us for an interactive session outlining early numeracy skills based on the mathematical strands: measurement, data analysis & chance, geometry & spatial thinking, patterns, number, sorting & classification. This session will present how to incorporate numeracy in the rhythms of the day, tried and true lesson plans, learning stories, provocations and activities from an Edmonton Catholic 100 Voices classroom. We aim to assist you in helping children of all ability levels in your class build numeracy skills in a fun and engaging way as well as change your practice to become more meaningful and intentional with numeracy in your  classroom.
