Helping Non-Readers to Excel in Numeracy through Technology

Helping Non-Readers to Excel in Numeracy through Technology | Elementary EdTech | Scoop.it
Difficulty in reading can spill over into other subjects, affecting student performance. Our mission is to make math accessible and enjoyable for all students, while helping teachers run effective, independent centers. For some time now, Happy Numbers has been working to add auditory directions to our online math exercises. This new sound feature allows students to click on the directions within any exercise to hear them read aloud. Now, your primary students can strengthen their math skills without being hindered by reading ability!

Starting a Student-Centered Classroom | Elementary EdTech | Scoop.it

It can be intimidating and sometimes, downright paralyzing, to consider changing an entire classroom management system.  At the core of it all, you have to decide what you truly believe about teaching and learning before making any kind of shift.  Once you have made the decision to make meaningful change, start small.  Look at what you are already doing and see if anything resonates with student choice...

Counting by Tens to Build Number Sense

Counting by Tens to Build Number Sense | Elementary EdTech | Scoop.it
How can you help your primary students make the leap from working with small numbers to becoming fluent with larger ones? One way they can start thinking in larger ‘chunks’ is by counting by tens.

Students with a strong conceptual understanding of round numbers, a ‘ten’, and ‘the tens place’ are better prepared to work with two-digit numbers and beyond. In this post, we will share the ideas behind our exercises in the topic Counting by Tens and some additional tips on reinforcing counting skills using Unifix cubes...

14 Web Tools For Teaching Without Student Logins | Elementary EdTech | Scoop.it

My grade and I often have a conversation that goes a little something like this:

Me: If you’ve finished your writing/numeracy activity, you can log onto ——-

Students: But I can’t remember my password to ———-

As a result of my occasional frustration with web 2.0 tools that require the creation/ability to remember usernames and passwords, I’ve decided to start building a list of websites which can be used in the classroom without these.
