Math Boot Camp

Rescheduled...

Math Bootcamp...for parents

Tuesday, November 28th at 6:30 pm
 
Attention parents & caregivers of 2nd & 3rd graders! Have you ever felt perplexed by your student's math homework?
 
It certainly look different that the math we were taught two or three decades ago, making it difficult to provide assistance. That's why SPL has teamed up with 2nd grade teacher, Deb Ortiz, to offer math Bootcamp...for Parents.
 
Parents/caregivers of 2nd and 3rd graders will be shown how their children are learning problem solving with Cognitively Guided Instruction. Watch a video of an actual math lesson happening in school and learn how today's instructions compare to the "old school" methods. Practice the new style...you may even bring your students and let them help you!
 
Register at the front desk, by phone at 580-7290, or email sbfuchsen@spenceriowacity.com
