Day 1: What are Singapore Math strategies and how do they fit into common core expectations and current and/or new materials? The day will be spent exploring activities and games that model the Singapore Math philosophy. Time will be spent focusing on the four operations beginning with "ten-ness" in Kindergarten and moving up to division in intermediate grades. Strategies will be presented that are grounded in place value and scaffolded to allow students multiple entry points into addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Participants will gain a firm foundation about the concrete-pictorial-abstract approach to teaching.
Day 2: Model Drawing is one of the most powerful Singapore Math strategies. The day will be spent building understanding about the progression of Model Drawing from early concrete experiences to more in-depth problem-solving tasks. Participants will be asked to solve multiple problems to practice this powerful strategy.
The Pyramid Model for Supporting Social Emotional Competence in Infants and Young Children is a conceptual framework of evidence-based practices developed by two national, federally-funded research and training centers: The Center for the Social and Emotional Foundations for Early Learning (CSEFEL) and The Technical Assistance Center for Social Emotional Intervention (TACSEI). Most recently, TACSEI developed a family coaching approach for implementing the Pyramid Model with caregivers in homes. This approach was developed to support home visitors who are working with caregivers of infants and toddlers with or at-risk for disabilities. The approach focuses on supporting home visitors in the use of evidence-based family coaching strategies to enhance caregivers’ capacity to promote their infant or toddlers’ social emotional competence. This presentation will describe the family coaching approach to implementing the pyramid model.
