Larson, Lotta C.; Rumsey, Chepina
Reading Teacher, v71 n5 p589-596 Mar-Apr 2018
This Teaching Tip describes the use of children's literature to help second-grade students meet Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts and for Mathematics. During a shared reading experience, students used manipulatives to represent plot and characters while demonstrating mathematical reasoning. The article offers instructional ideas, guiding questions, authentic student work samples, and a rationale for using children's literature and mathematics manipulatives to help students make connections across disciplines.
