    "Let’s Play and Learn Together! Games Engage ALL Children and Families in Math Thinking"

    Presentation at the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM)
    San Diego, California

    Building mathematical fluency through family engagement can powerfully support students. In this hands-on, minds-on session, we play math games and discuss using them to build and assess children’s number sense and engage families. Participants gain practical ideas to increase math access/engagement for PreK-2nd grade children and their families.

    "Looking at Student Work with Grade-level Colleagues: A Formative Assessment Protocol for Co-Planning"

    Presentation at the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM)
    San Diego, California

    We will examine a protocol for looking at student work in teacher teams. While the protocol is not grade specific, we will share case studies from Pre-K and 1st grade to highlight its use in early grades. The protocol provides a shared framework for collaborative inquiry and productive discussions among teachers about assessment and instruction.
