Tania McFee began her Natural Maths journey last year with some Ann Baker PD. She began working with the 4/5 class last year and now has the 6/7 students. Tania has not only engaged herself but has supported staff and other students. Each week the 2/3 class visit with their teacher to work on Natural Maths. I was fortunate today to be a part of this and have many pics, audio clips and more to share. There were many highlights including seeing interpersonal skills in action, a range of maths strategies in action with all the language that goes with it (equal, split, chunk, rainbow fact, friendly numbers, open number line). The room was full of engaged learners, the thinking was made visible on boards , books and with metalanguage. The reflection at the end was like icing on a cake !
Several schools in the Murray and Mallee have worked with Ann Baker over 2012 /2013
