Feeling like there isn’t enough time to get everything shoehorned into your mathematical program? “Making Every Math Minute Count” is a virtual workshop for K-5 teachers. This course gives elementary teachers powerful algebraic connection strategies that are ready for you to implement tomorrow. Teachers will enjoy games, songs, books and puzzles. These activities utilize every minute of the math period to engage every student in making algebraic connections in number sense and measurement. This virtual workshop addresses the Common Core, state and provincial standards.

Kim Sutton will model multi-grade strategies using classroom tested activities, games and puzzles. You will be thrilled with the collection of powerful materials ready for your classroom and be treated to engaging literature, songs, and practical strategies to make mathematics the best part of the teaching day!
