I am a certified elementary teacher who has been teaching hands-on math to young children for over 20 years. I have taught in a variety of settings, including public school, private school, and homeschool environments. I have been Math on Outschool for 2 years.
Students will be expected to complete 4-8 pages of homework each week.
I will provide downloadable activity supplies (number cards, recording sheets, etc.) if they are needed for the week's games. Many of the games require paper/pencil, index cards and dice, so having those on hand will be helpful. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED MATERIALS: Dimensions 5A Workbook, available here for about $13: https://www.singaporemath.com/collections/dimensions-math-pk-5/products/dimensions-math-workbook-5a?variant=40979858227389 Dimensions 5B Workbook (needed beginning in January): https://www.singaporemath.com/collections/dimensions-math-pk-5/products/dimensions-math-workbook-5b?variant=40979858653373 10-sided dice, available here for about $9: https://amzn.to/3wI7Wv5
Students are assessed constantly during their work in class. Throughout the activities, we discuss our thinking and our strategies for approaching problems.
1 hour 20 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
