Message from the Assistant Principal of Elementary: Mme Schile

I am excited to be at CFIS for a second year, and to be working with such a dedicated and passionate team of educators.

Parents, are you looking for ways to support your child’s mathematics skills and understanding? Try these simple tips:

  • Have your child explain their thinking and listen to what mistakes they are making rather than simply correcting mistakes.
  • Model the daily math you use by talking through your strategies out loud and your child will hear and see how math is used in the real world.
  • Use pictures to represent math problems to help develop the understanding behind the algorithms.
  • Combine understanding with memorization,creating stronger number sense. (Green, 2014) For more about how to support your child’s learning, join us on October 3rd for a Parent Information session.
