How might we deepen our understanding of numeracy using Children’s literature? What if we mathematize our read aloud books to use them in math as well as reading and writing workshop? We invite you to listen and learn while we share ways to deepen understanding of numeracy and literacy. Come exercise your mathematical flexibility to show what you know more than one way.
