Like many teachers, you may feel like there never seem to be enough hours during the school day to teach your students everything they need to learn. Confronted with the ever-increasing pressure to ensure that you are meeting your curricular goals and your students are meeting standards, it's easy to feel overwhelmed by all of the requirements that must be met during the school year. Fortunately, this innovative, groundbreaking text will help you creatively connect two of the most valued and tested content areas in our schools while working within the constraints of your already busy schedule. Gone are the curricular barriers that have long separated elementary math and literacy instruction! Literacy + Math demonstrates how standards from both areas can be simultaneously introduced, understood, and reinforced through engaging lessons. Connecting these content areas---and allowing children to see these connections---will make your instruction twice as likely to stick, foster students' real-world connections to their learning, and allow you to meet the common instructional goals shared by both areas. Chapters are filled with hands-on, math-focused activities organized around reading, writing, oral language, and visual literacy skills. Classroom samples from all grade levels K-6 are interspersed throughout the book to demonstrate students' abilities and learning. qWhere Do I Go From Here?q Sections are also included to help you apply your professional learning in your own classroom and beyond.CHAPTER 4 Creating Powerful Poetry About Mathematical Concepts first realized the power of poetry when I worked in urban schools I as a reading consultant.
