During this session participants will receive a brief overview of the Common Core Learning Standards and find out ways in which approaches to learning can be changed to meet these new standards. The presenters will also show how some games can be played with children to reinforce some of the new approaches to learning math. Participants will have the opportunity to make a board game to take home to play with grandchildren (or nieces/nephews) that will reinforce math concepts in Pre-K – 4.

These roadmaps from the Council of the Great City Schools provide guidance to parents about what their child will learn in mathematics and how they can help support their child's learning in grades K-8.

Cassidy Mattimore (Director of the Potsdam Teacher Center) and Amy Murphy have been providing support to teachers and students as they transition to using the Common Core Learning Standards. As the Math Lab coordinator for the elementary school in Potsdam, Amy has created a number of games for students at each grade level that support concepts students need to practice.
