    1. 1. GO MATH!® VIRTUAL ASSIST … the place where your kids could practice and improve their math class lessons at home. By: Leonardo Vasco Montoya
    2. 2. Who is “ GO MATH!® VIRTUAL ASSIST ” addressed to? <ul><li>This blog is for kids, parents, and teachers who are involved in a mathematics curriculum based on Go Math© 2011 Houghton Mifflin Harcourt publishing company, as a methodological proposal. </li></ul>
    3. 3. Children will be able to … <ul><li>correct their own mistakes and improve the concepts understanding easily, through daily practice. </li></ul>
    4. 4. Methodology: <ul><li>Go Math!® Virtual Assist, is an attractive Math Virtual Learning Environment, with activities, games, projects, and literature focused on numerical thinking - ready to use. </li></ul><ul><li>Helping children interact with math activities in new ways as they reinforce their number concepts . </li></ul><ul><li>The best way of learning is through practice, practice, and more practice ; this way helps improve weaknesses and build confidence. </li></ul><ul><li>We all know that getting kids to enjoy practicing at home is not always easy , but it can be done through useful, attractive, funny and engaging homework assignments, games or explorative activities. </li></ul>
    5. 5. In Gimnasio Los Alcázares School, students develop mathematical thinking through English as a Second Language instruction. Go Math© provides most of the lessons, activities, and materials to achieve curriculum purposes. Nevertheless, the subject instruction time and additional assignments (for teachers), do not allow organize a curriculum with all the activities and resources submitted by the publishers; during class time textbook strategies and resources is only provided. Environment:
    6. 6. Thus, this Virtual Learning Environment works as a class extension resource. Where students, parents or teachers could access to a great variety of additional lesson practice tools with engaging activities or reinforcement assignments, through videos – audio – interactive digital resources – digital math literature – online software – virtual platforms –etc.

    8. 8. Activities and resources: Vocabulary Builder Kindergarten is a time of very rapid vocabulary growth. Part of this vocabulary concerns numbers. Using multiple strategies to develop grade-appropriate vocabulary. Using pictures, numbers, and words to show quantities 0 – 10. Power point presentations Videos Listen and Talk Reading problems and asking children to describe hot they will solve the problem. Asking open-ended questions and soliciting responses encourages children to communicate and share ideas with others. Audio aids Math stories Worksheets Linking websites
    9. 9. Math Reading Reading and writing numerals and number words. Reading math stories and comparing numbers through 10. Math stories Linking Websites Show What you Know giving children the opportunity of use and practice the number sequence 0 through 10. IXL website DESTINATION software Web Quest
    10. 11. Why Teach This Most of educators and parents would agree that focus on using numbers to represent quantities is one of the most important aspects of mathematics for young children. Understanding what numbers mean helps children describe situations and follow directions. In kindergarten, children consolidate and extend their prior knowledge of numbers by representing them with a variety of physical objects, spoken words, and written symbols.   “ Children begin to develop a sense of number even before they have learned words to express numerosity or number-ness. Nonetheless, learning the language of numbers plays a complex and ongoing role in the developmental process.” (Martinez & Martinez, 2007, p.99)   As children work, invite them to show and talk about what they are doing. In this way, the lesson will involve many communication forms: listening, speaking, writing, reading, and gesturing to convey meanings.
    11. 12. LANGUAGE SUPPORT LEARNING STYLE Model Concepts Children may understand concepts and vocabulary if they are modeled (illustrated). Children can practice their comprehension by describing what they see.   Visual Kinesthetic, verbal linguistic   Draw Children can demonstrate their prior knowledge and understanding by drawing rather than by using language.   Visual Kinesthetic verbal linguistic Auditory Define   children can define words by using them in context or (by matching visuals to their definitions) Visual Kinesthetic Verbal linguistic Creative Grouping   Children can be grouped for language needs, or for mathematics needs to assist in language acquisition and math practice. Auditory Model Language   Children can learn correct pronunciation by repeating words and sentences that are modeled by native speakers. Visual kinesthetic Restate   Restate key vocabulary by renaming the words in a more familiar way. Visual kinesthetic
