We are excited to announce the sixth Professional Development session in a series from our Communities of Practice: Math Leadership, Critical Transitions, Indigenous Knowledge & Computational Modelling.
In this presentation on numeracy screeners for Kindergarten to grade 3, Heather Douglas will provide a brief review of early numeracy and the critical foundations for number learning. Using lessons learned from literacy, Heather will review what is involved in a numeracy screening program. Core considerations for selecting a screener and how to find a suitable screener will be part of the conversation.
The EMA@School is a research-based numeracy screener that has been tested with over 30 000 students. Douglas will describe this new assessment tool and, using the list of core considerations as a rubric, will assign it a grade. Spoiler alert – it’s good but needs some tweaking to earn an A+.
Facilitated, small group discussions will allow you to share your experiences and to learn from your peers. The session will close with a discussion of future plans and opportunities for you to get involved in research with the EMA@School.
We are excited to announce the first Professional Development session in a series from our Communities of Practice: Math Leadership, Critical Transitions, Indigenous Knowledge & Computational Modelling.
Members of the Critical Transitions in Early Math Group will share and provide access to resources for educators that support K-Grade 3 mathematics. Presenters will include Melanie Martin and Dr. Lynda Colgan (The Roots of Coding); Dr. Sandy Youmans (Early Math at Home and Early Math at School); Dr. Heather Douglas (Early Math Assessment Screening Tool); Hannah Wickstrom (Structured Play); and Angeline Hunter (Greater Essex County District Classroom Support Documents).

Math Knowledge Network QUARTERLY 2 (1)
Dear MKN Partners and Members,
Welcome to Volume 2 Issue 1 of the Math Knowledge Network Quarterly!
We are starting our fifth year with some leadership changes. Dona Kotsopoulos, a soon to be Dean of Western Faculty of Education is continuing as a Co-Director, joined by Dragana Martinovic, Professor from University of Windsor, who is replacing George Gadanidis, while he is on sabbatical. This year was challenging for all educators, school leaders, parents and students, making it even more important that we celebrate resilience and successes in our communities. In this Newsletter, you can read about activities of our four communities of practice in the previous quarter. Wishing you all health and happiness as we are closing on 2020!
Donna & Dragana (MKN co-Directors), & Arielle (MKN Coordinator)
