Many Ka€“6 teachers--and students--still think of mathematics as a totally separate subject from literacy. Yet incorporating math content into the language arts block helps students gain skills for reading many kinds of texts. And bringing reading, writing, and talking into the math classroom supports the development of conceptual knowledge and problem solving, in addition to computational skills. This invaluable book thoroughly explains integrated instruction and gives teachers the tools to make it a reality. Grounded in current best practices for both language arts and math, the book includes planning advice, learning activities, assessment strategies, reproducibles, and resources, plus a wealth of examples from actual classrooms.a€œNow math is my favorite subject! It used to by my least favorite subject. Wow!a€ a€œ Math is easier now. I didna#39;t used to like it!a€ a€œLeta#39;s have a math party!a€ Comments like these begin to emerge late in September in Carolea#39;s third-grade class.
