In the primary grades, students are learning about school, they are learning fundamental mathematics content, and they are developing written language skills. A particular challenge of work in these early grades is helping students build early mathematics knowledge when they are still learning about school and developing skills with written language and print. Language is an essential part of teaching and learning mathematics; supporting students to develop language skills alongside mathematics is a powerful tool for building student confidence and competence.

In this second edWebinar of a two-part series, Dr. Sara Delano Moore shares resources and strategies for developing the language and concepts of geometry and measurement with children’s literature. We develop understanding of shapes (both 3D and 2D) and measurement (with standard and non-standard units) with trade books and big books that use high-quality language features as well as strong mathematics. Learn strategies to help students move from everyday language to mathematical language while building understanding of key geometry and measurement concepts. Watch Sara to explore strategies and resources for developing conceptual understanding of geometry and measurement through language and literature.

This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to teachers and school leaders of the preK through elementary levels.
