Foundations for Primary Grades Mathematics cohorts are professional learning communities that grow second and third grade teachers’ understanding of effective ways to scaffold and differentiate instruction to better accommodate student needs via a learning climate that welcomes questions, opinions and participation of all students. Members will focus on how to select instructional tasks that encourage mathematical discourse and help students conceptually understand place value, addition/subtraction, multiplication/division and fractions. Participants receive specialized training from an experienced facilitator featuring evidence-based strategies and materials from experts in early numeracy development. Community members provide support to each educator as new strategies and methods are utilized in the classroom.
