Theresa will be presenting a burst session geared towards the 3-5 grade band entitled “Visual Vocabulary – Are They Getting the Picture?” – time and location will be forthcoming
“Your students seem to understand math concepts during hands-on activities, but don’t test well. Is vocabulary the problem? Math terms with multiple meanings could be muddying the waters. Learn how using powerful visuals, mnemonics and easy strategies to intentionally focus on vocabulary during math instruction can make a huge difference!”
