Welcome to Knollwood Elementary's Math Page
Please enjoy this site by exploring all of the mathematical possibilities that it contains. Please notice the links that are available for integration of technology in your instruction. Most of the links provide interactive activities that can be completed using the Promethean Board.
Take the time to explore the possibilities!
The activities include the same manipulatives that are a part of the state manipulative kits and that demonstrate best practices in math including,
If there are any questions about how to use the links to support the interactive math instruction and Promethean Board lessons, please e-mail or contact Kellee.
The file attachments included on this site will support efforts in creating number sense. Number sense is a vital building block for student understanding of all mathematical concepts, make it a part of every day.
Thank you for all you do in helping our students create and reach their goals.
