Description

In Person

AISWA are pleased to offer a session on Mathematics Intervention and Support using Bond blocks presented by Narelle Rice & Dr Paul Swan. Teachers will need to register with AISWA directly to attend this session. Places are limited.

Mathematics Intervention and Support Year 1 to Year 6 – Building the Foundation of Addition and Subtraction

These two sessions will be offered at AISWA.  3/41 Walters Dr, Osborne Park WA 6017 in their new training rooms. The two session will run from 8:45 to 12, with a short break in between.

Session 1

Differentiation is different to Intervention. In this session Dr Paul Swan and Narelle Rice will explore:
i. A Response To Intervention framework for a whole school approach to Maths Intervention
ii. Key attributes of students who experience difficulty in mathematics and require intervention.
iii. Guidelines to teach and implement intervention effectively, including the use of manipulatives in a Concrete – Representational – Abstract Framework.
The mathematics in the session will focus on additive thinking: from initial counting in Kindergarten through to Year 3 level addition and subtraction.
Reference will be made to how a Concrete Representational Abstract approaches links to the solving of word questions in addition and subtraction.

Session 2

Bond Block Introduction. In this session Narelle Rice will outline how Bond Blocks may support good Wave 1 differentiated Teaching and subsequent Wave 2 and 3 intervention.

Bond Blocks is a system of over 100 sequenced activities to build understanding and fluency in addition and subtraction with basic facts, including application to word problems and related algebra. The system has two uses:
1) As part of a whole school approach to Mental Maths in Years 1 to 3.
2) As an Intervention Support System for students in Years 3-6 who count to add and subtract.

The Bond Block system includes a placement test and a monitoring/tracking tool.

Every activity is completed on one, reusable A3 board, by pairs/individuals. Each activity is modelled in a short video (1 - 2min), which teachers can watch prior to the lesson or give to support staff or show directly to the students.

Further support notes and materials are provided at Bondblocks.com so that teachers can differentiate the tasks

Numeracy Consultant

Sheila joined AISWA in 2019. She has a Primary School background working in the state school sector where she had a range of Numeracy roles including the West Australian Project Officer for the teaching of Consumer and Financial Literacy education through the MoneySmart Program. Sheila has also delivered “hands on” Primary Maths workshops at Murdoch University.

She has received several awards with recognition at a national level when she was awarded an Excellence in Teaching Mathematics and Outstanding Primary Maths Teacher of the Year from the Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute (AMSI). Additionally, she received a national award for her whole school approach to the teaching of Consumer and Financial Literacy.

Sheila has a passion for improving the teaching of mathematics by supporting schools and teachers through targeted professional learning and practical classroom ideas.

She delivers hands on engaging professional learning to teachers in schools. Her sessions have included practical ideas and activities which can be implemented in the classroom the next day. Within sessions Sheila has provided clear ideas on how to differentiate student learning as well as assessment techniques. These have given teachers the confidence to meet the needs of their students.
