Title:
How Much, How Many, How Often, How Long?.... Linking Literature to Math
Topic:
How Much, How Many, How Often, How Long?.... Linking Literature to Math
Summary:
How Much, How Many, How Often, How Long?.... Linking Literature to Math Join me as I sample through a variety of excellent children’s literature, both fiction and non fiction choices. Each year I use a new batch of books and sample a new set of tips, tasks and techniques for infusing foundational reading, writing and arithmetic skills into the explorations and problems that can be teased from the books. My theme this year: how the questions How Much, How Many, How Often, How Long sit at the heart of what truly are the BASIC SKILLS in math. Engage your students with new ideas on Monday.
Biography:
