It's All About Thinking: Collaborating to Support All Learners in Mathematics and Science
Format: Paperback
  • Collaborating to Support All Learners in Mathematics and Science

    Grade: for grades 5-12

    In this second volume of It’s All About Thinking, the authors focus their expertise on the disciplines of mathematics and science, translating principles into practices that help other educators with their students.

    How can we help students develop the thinking skills they need to become successful learners?
    How does this relate to deep learning of important concepts in mathematics and science?
    How can we engage and support diverse learners in inclusive classrooms where they develop understanding and thinking skills?
    In this book, Faye, Leyton and Carole explore these questions and offer classroom examples to help busy teachers develop communities where all students learn. This book is written by three experienced educators who offer a welcoming and “can-do” approach to the big ideas in math and science education today. In this book you will find:

    insightful ways to teach diverse learners (Information circles, open-ended strategies, inquiry, manipulatives and models)
    lessons crafted using curriculum design frameworks (udl and backwards design)
    assessment for, as, and of learning
    fully fleshed-out lessons and lesson sequences; inductive teaching to help students develop deep learning and thinking skills in Math and Science
    assessment tools (and student samples) for concepts drawn from learning outcomes in Math and Science curricula
    excellent examples of theory and practice made accessible
    real school examples of collaboration — teachers working together to create better learning opportunities for their students

Math Work Stations: Independent Learning You Can Count On, K to 2
Author: Debbie Diller
Format: Paperback
  • If you've ever questioned how to make math stations work, you'll find this photo-filled, idea-packed resource invaluable. This book extends Debbie Diller's best-selling work on literacy work stations and classroom design to the field of mathematics. In Math Work Stations you'll find ideas to help children develop conceptual understanding and skills, use math vocabulary as they talk about their mathematical thinking, and connect big ideas to meaningful independent exploration and practice. This book details how to set up, manage, and keep math stations going throughout the year. There's even a chapter devoted solely to organizing and using math manipulatives. Each chapter includes:

    * math vocabulary resources and literature links;
    * suggested materials to include at each station ;
    * ideas for modeling, troubleshooting, differentiating, and assessment; and
    * reflection questions for professional development.

    Throughout the book, Debbie has included hundreds of color photos showing math work stations in action from a variety of classrooms in which she has worked. Charts, reproducible forms, and math work stations icons are included to provide everything you'll need to get started with stations in your classroom right away.


Number Sense Routines
Author: Jessica Shumway
Format: Paperback
  • Building numerical literacy every day in grades K-3

    Students with strong number sense understand numbers, ways to represent numbers, relationships among numbers, and number systems. They make reasonable estimates, compute fluently, use reasoning strategies, and use visual models based on their number sense to solve problems. Students who never develop strong number sense will struggle with nearly all mathematical strands, from measurement and geometry to data and equations.

    This practical book shows that number sense can be taught to all students. It offers a series of routines designed to help young students internalize and deepen their facility with numbers. The daily use of these quick five-, ten-, or fifteen-minute experiences at the beginning of math class will help build students' number sense. Dozens of classroom examples -- including conversations among students engaging in number sense routines -- illustrate how the routines work, how children's number sense develops, and how to implement responsive routines


Format: Paperback
  • A math assessment tool that reveals learning and informs teaching

    The ANIE (Assessment of Numeracy in Education) is a classroom-developed tool that uses performance standards to assess student understanding of math concepts so teachers can plan timely and targeted instruction and intervention where it is needed most. This straightforward book introduces a simple and powerful single-page assessment template that guides students to explain math concepts and make connections to their relevance in the real world. The book describes a 5-step process for solving any math question, offers proven techniques for introducing the template, suggests easy ways to grade and interpret the results, and provides students samples that illustrate the ANIE in action.


The Garden Classroom: Hands-On Activities in Math, Science, Literacy, and Art
Author: Cathy James
Format: Paperback
  • Creative ways to use the garden to inspire learning, for kids ages 4-8

    Packed with garden-based activities that promote science, math, reading, writing, imaginative play, and arts and crafts, The Garden Classroom offers a whole year of outdoor play and learning ideas—however big or small your garden.

    Every garden offers children a rich, sensory playground, full of interesting things to discover and learn about. There's a whole lot of science happening right before their eyes. The garden can also be a place to develop math and literacy skills, as the outdoors offers up plenty of invitations to weave learning into everyday gardening. The garden classroom is a place where plants grow, and where children grow too.


The Learning Pathway
Author: Meagan Mutchmor
Format: Paperback
  • The Learning Pathway is intended as a companion document to your current mathematics instruction and as an assessment tool you can use throughout the school year. The Learning Pathway is based on extensive research that shows all students progress through three global developmental stages (Counting, Part-Whole Thinking, and Proportional Reasoning) when learning the key topics in mathematics. It is designed to help you do the following: Plan ongoing assessment to determine your students' points of strength, as well as plan next steps for instruction. Focus on key growth points that students travel through as they consolidate their content knowledge and apply their learning in real-world contexts. Plan focused instruction to meet your students' needs, as well as guide formative assessment and reporting to parents. Differentiate your instruction for student learning, according to the math that is just beyond each student's current ability. Highlight the important roles that Knowledge, Application of Knowledge and Modelling and Communicating Mathematical Thinking play as students construct their understanding of concepts in mathematics. Use signposts that follow the principles of student global developmental stages of growth in mathematics. Establish a bridge between actual classroom practice and the curriculum.

The Making of a Star Blanket
Format: Paperback
  • The Making of a Star Blanket provides students with an opportunity to work with paper and colour, while integrating the concepts of numbers into the learning and teaching process. The hands-on experience of being able to fold the paper into different shapes, patterns and designs, adding colour, and coordinating all of this is an excellent strategy to motivate students to learn math. Being able to manipulate and visualize different concepts of math before engaging in the actual activity of making a star blanket is a good learning experience.

    The section, The Star Blanket Making Process From the Sewing Perspective, shows a step-by-step progression of how to assemble a star blanket. The skill of how to create and sew a star blanket is a desired outcome for all learners. Not only does it teach the skill and manipulation of numbers, colours and patterns, it also teaches patience and builds positive self-esteem with the learner.

    There are many mathematical concepts that can be taught and assessed with the Star Blanket. These concepts are not an end to itself, but generates a foundation of ideas and skills for teachers and students.
