BCAMT New Teachers’ Conference

The BCAMT New Teachers’ Conference was held in Surrey, B.C. on February 16, 2013.  The participants were eager to extend their knowledge and understanding about helping their students understand the math they are doing.  Throughout the day there was a clear message that students need to be engaged in their own learning and comprehend the math they are doing.  I presented a session for a wonderful group of K – Gr. 2 teachers about building a solid mathematical foundation using one of the many tools available.  We focused on using ten frames to develop number sense.  The group agreed that by using ten frames students are able to use a visual organizer to help them make sense of subitizing and partitioning numbers.
