DetailsDesigned to bridge the gap between language and math, many of the activities in this interactive workbook draw children into simple math operations and encourage them to "talk through" them. The book is filled with activity sheets and projects for children to use directly. Intended for early primary grade students, this workbook has two main purposes - first to identify terms associated with quantity, order math operations and principles of math in our daily experience - second, to suggest ways of talking through simple math operations and the reasons supporting them. The first section presents numbers, symbols, counting and ordinal relationships. The second section presents verbal aspects of simple math operations. The last section presents language associated with measurement, money, temperature, shaped and patterns. Each section has an introductory page that explains vocabulary and intentions of the chapter.

This book helps you to present these words in friendly simple activities that are different than those you'll find in curriculum math materials. Give your student with language difficulties more practice in learning words that are so important for success in math!
Not only do children meet words representing math concepts in their math curriculum, they are faced with understanding and talking about math operations. What a challenge for our language students! Many of the activities in this book draw children into simple math operations and encourage them to "talk through" these operations.
Math helps us every day. Activities are designed to stimulate conversations and lessons where math concepts function to help qualify, manipulate and organize everyday experiences.
Working through the activities in The Language of Math For Young Learners will guide you to weave math and language concepts through your thinking and talk about what you did!
