The teaching activities presented in this document focus on teaching students the language of mathematics through reading and writing. The first activity teaches students about space, time, numbers, and languages by having them give directions to a robot, compare distances traveled, read a map, and write a story with illustrations about a robot. The second activity develops students' math concepts, while exercising the critical ability of distinguishing between the general and the specific, by coupling numbers with words that create visual images (two poodles plus two beagles equals four dogs). The third activity uses newspaper grocery ads as an example of environmental print and requires students to analyze and add prices and develop menus. The last activity uses the telephone to engage students in reading rate charts, solving problems, and computing costs. (HTH)
