Connecting Mathematics and Writing Workshop: It's Kinda like Ice Skating
Carter, Susan
Reading Teacher, v62 n7 p606-610 Apr 2009
Second-grade students struggle with writing about mathematical topics during math class, so the teacher begins to integrate mathematical topics into their Writing Workshop. Content journals are used during math, and students are encouraged to write about personal connections to mathematical situations, as well as incorporate mathematical concepts into stories. As a result, the Writing Workshop is invigorated, and written answers during math class are improved and expanded. (Contains 4 figures.)
