It is amazing how many different opportunities are opening up with my math manipulatives. Laura Walley, Assistant Principal. and Ruth Miller, Parent Involvement Coordinator, are organizing a math workshop on January 14th for parents to learn teaching math strategies to help their children with homework. I have been invited to use my math manipulatives during the workshop. Because Elm Street Elementary has a large Spanish speaking population, it is very likely that I will need to have Ms. Miller translate my teaching strategies to the parents as well as translate the dialogue between them and me. I am excited about this new kind of demonstration for me and opportunity to help parents provide support for their children’s education.
