Multi-Sensory Math - with Ron Yoshimoto
Math can be an area of difficulty for many students and particularly those with dyslexia. This 2-day training will discuss problems that students have in mathematics and then focus on multi-sensory strategies using manipulatives to teach addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division (and a little of fractions - up to finding equivalent fractions). The emphasis of this math program is conceptual understanding as opposed to rote learning. This program can be used for remediation, instruction for mainstream students and for enrichment.
See how you can "build" multiplication problems. How can you teach algebra in kindergarten using manipulatives? How can you draw a division problem? This training is for people who are "open" to teaching mathematics in a different way - multi-sensory, structured, visual, and conceptually oriented.
The course will include all materials and a series of "Ron surprises".
This class is limited to 20 participants and we expect it to fill, so please, register quickly.
