Thank you for your interest. The workshop has filled and registration is closed.
What does fluency with basic facts actually mean, and how is fact fluency developed? During this session, participants will explore meaningful activities and games designed to help children progress along a developmental trajectory towards lasting fact mastery. Sample alternative basic fact assessments, including video and written examples of students at work, will also be examined and discussed.
