About this learning opportunity

Good literature has students engaged, interested and motivated. In this session, you will explore ways to use children’s literature to help students develop number sense and make connections between mathematics and the world around them. The process will be modeled as you engage in activities and discuss ways to enhance your instructional practice and student engagement through the use of story.
