Place Value And The Four Operations
Come and enjoy a fabulous, thought provoking numeracy session by a master presenter. Then enjoy the afternoon in beautiful Stirling in South Australia!
Find out about a range of minimum preparation, engaging and mathematically worthwhile place value activities from Reception to Year 8.
The session will cleverly link place value skills with the four operations, using them to actually understand why and how addition, subtraction, multiplication and division work.
Rob's session will look at some highly effective problem solving methods that are easy entry and provide a high ceiling for all students .... his approaches just work, and you'll never look back.

What is the Gradual Release Approach?
Candace at Kaurna Plains School in Adelaide explains how the Gradual Release approach works in her literacy block, and how it is changing engagement and results significantly.

Developing the Reading Workshop
Two teachers (Sean and Chris) at Coromandel Valley Primary School describe how they have completely changed the structure of their Reading lessons to work within an inquiry model. The new model has all the elements of a Reading Workshop: 1. TO: Mini Lesson - Using a Read Aloud to model a strategy (Good readers use text to visualise characters & setting and to infer) 2. WITH: Shared Reading - Guided practice of the strategy using enlarged text for all to see (teacher and children do it together) 3. BY: Independent Reading - Independent practice of the visualisation strategy (the children practise the strategy in their own books) 4. SHARE: Turn and Talk - Discuss with an elbow partner how you used the visualisation strategy or other strategies in your own book
