Early Learning Numeracy Train the Trainer- Training Modules – SAVE THE DATE!
DEL is offering a 3-day training focusing on Numeracy this fall and we hope that you will join us. State WaKIDS data indicates that math skills are the lowest of skills measured by Teaching Strategies GOLD™ when students enter Kindergarten. DEL and OSPI collaborated to adapt already developed OSPI modules to the early learning community. This training is focused on teaching numeracy concepts to three and four year olds. The goal is to minimize the achievement gap for the children we serve.
