Get Students Counting for Meaning: Developing Numbers Sense Through Conceptual Constructs – Lara Richardson
When I first started teaching, I had no idea what “developing number sense” meant in practice or how to do it. All I knew was that some of my students came to me as excellent counters and some are really struggling. If you’ve had this experience too, I would love to share with you how to figure out what stage of the counting learning trajectory your students are in, and some actionable steps and ideas to support your students in developing their number sense.
About Lara Richardson
Instructional Coach, Curriculum Writer, Making Number Sense Make Sense
I didn’t used to consider myself a “math person” so when I was told I would be teaching only math and science and the choice of what grade level to teach (in Spanish no less) I chose Kindergarten. I thought, Kindergarten math is easy right? I had no idea how complex and nuanced it was to develop number sense and I had a hard time finding what I was looking for. I have spent the last 10 years doing a deep dive into the intricacies of counting and number sense and am sharing, and how to support students in gaining a solid foundation for any problem (math or otherwise) they will see as they grow. If you are looking for that information too I share about it in my blog, podcast, and YouTube Channel: Making Number Sense Make Sense.
