On the afternoon of January 26, staffs from twelve elementary schools gathered at Grauer Elementary for our annual Elementary Math Focus Afternoon.
The overview slides (photographs from classrooms not included to reduce file size) from the opening to the afternoon can be found here:
Many school teams brought displays to share how they have been working with BC’s redesigned mathematics curriculum.
Educators could choose from a variety of Richmond teacher-led sessions to learn about instructional routines and practices that are aligned with the BC redesigned curriculum.
Handouts from Fred Harwood’s sessions can be downloaded here:
Thanks to Tracy Weeks of the Canadian Federation for Economic Education (CFEE) for coming and sharing information about financial literacy with Richmond educators.
As educators gathered back in the gym for an end of afternoon prize draw of math resources, they were left with a reminder to consider the mathematical story that is being told in their classrooms and schools. What story do we want our students to tell about their mathematical experience here in our district?
