Information concerning reading skills that must be developed concomitantly with fundamental mathematical concepts is provided in this paper designed for elementary school mathematics teachers. The relation of basic computation skills to vocabulary developments and specialized reading skills is discussed. Teaching suggestions are illustrated by sample problems in many areas including: the use of flash cards, mathematical writing, the language of algebra, a translation of sentences into algebraic equations, open sentences, understanding formulas, translating symbols, drawing conclusions, estimating reasonable answers, and using diagrams.
