14- Making Addition and Subtraction Concepts Meaningful

Thursday, April 14, 2011: 8:00 AM-9:00 AM
Wabash Ballroom 3 (Convention Center)
Lead Speaker:
Rosemary Reuille Irons

Language is the bridge for this support, using stories, pictorial representation, and guides to the sequence of development for number facts.
