My Heartfelt Thanks for Teaching in Turbulent 2020!

Welcome to 2021! I don’t think I need to add anything to all that has been said  2020 except good riddance. Our house burned up and still isn’t rebuilt, schools have been on-site, then remote, then on-site, then remote, then… 

…And through it all, teachers and students have been struggling to stay focused. 

I think we all deserve a pat on the back for making it through 2020. 

Whether you have had a good or a bad year, it’s important to celebrate what one can – and that’s why I’m celebrating you! Thank you for visiting this site and for your continued support.

Thank you for getting up every day and heading to school to be there for your students, even if your “school” is a computer in your garage. 

Thank you for Zoom-ing, Team-ing, Google Jam-ming, Flipboarding, Screencastify-ing, Padlet-ing, or whatever new technology you have learned to connect with your crew.

Thank you for subscribing to our Jumpstart Your Singapore Math On-Demand video modules! They are being updated now and will be available in smaller, bite-sized chunks soon.

Thank you for having me in your classrooms. It is a privilege to continue to work with teachers and students during these crazy months. 

I have plenty of posts and videos coming so keep your eyes on this space. Additionally, I will also be announcing summer 2021 Jumpstart Your Singapore Math workshops soon, so be sure to sign up for the mailing list. 


Jumpstart Your Singapore Math – Online!

*Due to current COVID restrictions, we’re sad to announce that the workshops scheduled for California and Minnesota will no longer be held onsite.*

As much as we’d love to work with you in-person, we know that many states are in limbo right now, awaiting budget and schedule decisions for fall, however, we are fully prepared to support you and your teachers with the best training possible in these unusual circumstances. And so…

We’re thrilled to announce that we are offering the sessions as a synchronous/asynchronous (or choose your buzzword: video and live, online, remote…) workshop format. 

Here’s how it will work

Part 1: Video Modules

The week before the live sessions, attendees will get access to almost 6 hours of recorded modules covering the basics of Singapore Math, along with a Math Champions Sourcebook. The modules cover the bulk of the mathematical content we typically address during onsite Jumpstart workshops.

Module 1: What is Singapore Math? What are the foundations and pedagogy of the curriculum? What should a typical lesson look like? What is a “task”?

Module 2: What are the addition and subtraction foundations I need to know? How do I teach mental math strategies?

Module 3: How do I teach multiplication facts? What mental math strategies for multiplication and division do I need to know?

Module 4: How do I use place value discs to teach the four operations for whole numbers and decimals?

Module 5: What is bar modeling? How do I teach bar modeling in a classroom?

Part 2: Live meetings!

Typically, the Jumpstart Your Singapore Math workshops are curriculum neutral, meaning, we can’t address specific content for every set of books. A virtual format allows us to focus directly on your specific grade levels and materials. On July 30 and 31, you can choose to attend sessions specifically for your materials and/or grade level. These sessions are NOT webinars. They are meetings with a limited number of attendees and the same two-way conversations we have in all of our in-person training.
