In person instruction, in a Model Classroom

Workshop Description:

This comprehensive workshop is designed for lower elementary Montessori educators seeking to rejuvenate their approach to mathematics instruction. The course focuses on reinforcing the foundational Montessori math presentations, cultivating an environment where mathematical understanding thrives, and equipping educators with strategies to foster confidence in mathematics among young learners.

Key Objectives:

  1. Revisiting Fundamental Montessori Math Presentations: Educators will receive an in-depth refresher on the essential Montessori math presentations. This segment emphasizes understanding how each presentation lays the groundwork for developing a mathematical mind in young children. Educators will revisit techniques for engaging students with these presentations, ensuring a solid foundation for their mathematical journey.

  2. Overcoming Math Phobias - Building Confidence: The workshop will address the crucial aspect of transforming apprehension into confidence in the realm of mathematics. Educators will learn how to identify signs of math anxiety in children and explore effective Montessori-aligned strategies to help students overcome these challenges. The focus will be on nurturing a positive mathematical mindset, creating a classroom environment where mistakes are seen as learning opportunities.

  3. Structuring Multi-Step Problem Solving: A significant portion of the workshop will be dedicated to guiding educators on how to assist students in building a structured approach to multi-step problem-solving. This involves teaching children to break down complex problems into manageable steps, fostering logical thinking and perseverance. Educators will gain insights into scaffolding these skills in a Montessori setting, ensuring students develop both the competence and confidence to tackle challenging mathematical concepts.

Workshop Format:

The workshop will consist of interactive sessions, including lectures, hands-on activities with Montessori materials, and group discussions. Participants will have opportunities to practice presentations, engage in problem-solving scenarios, and collaborate with peers to share insights and experiences.

Who Should Attend:

This workshop is ideal for Montessori lower elementary educators, both novice and experienced, who wish to refresh their mathematics teaching skills and deepen their understanding of Montessori pedagogy in mathematics education.
