I am so excited to be hosting a summer book study again this year with Thinking About Teaching. Last summer, we really delved into Guided Math by Laney Sammons. It was a lot of fun, and it really transformed my teaching. Judging from many of the posts that I've read over this school year, Guided Math made an impact on many classrooms.
This summer, we're ready to get our math on, again! Check out this awesome book we're diving into this summer. . . .
Building Mathematical Comprehension by Laney Sammons.
I know we've all had success using Comprehension Strategies for Reading. . . why not apply them to Math??
Doesn't it make sense that being able to visualize, question, make connections, and dig for important details will help kiddos in Math? (Are you also saying to yourself, "Why didn't I think of that?!"
I am just SO excited to get into this book!
From Amazon: "Building Mathematical Comprehension provides a solid foundation for incorporating familiar reading comprehension strategies and relevant research in mathematics instruction to help build students' mathematical comprehension. This stand-alone book demonstrates how to facilitate student learning to build schema and make connections among concepts. Teachers will learn how to help students ask good questions, visualize mathematics, and synthesize their understanding of mathematical concepts."
Grab your copy & get ready! It all launches on June 8th!

And on another note. . . . .
I only have FIVE days left, people! FIVE days!
