Lee, Mi Yeon; Francis, Dionne Cross – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2019

Children's literature can provide useful contexts for teaching mathematics. In this article, the authors discuss the use of the children's book "Measuring Penny" (Leedy 1997) to support Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) (CCSSI 2010) related to length measurement. The authors first describe three types of misconceptions…

Buchheister, Kelley; Jackson, Christa; Taylor, Cynthia E. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2019

Equitable instruction is reflected in how students are positioned in the classroom and how their identities evolve through purposeful interactions that value and recognize the intellectual capacity of each student. In this article, the authors describe how a kindergarten teacher planned and facilitated a geometry lesson that attended to the…

Bertolone-Smith, Claudia M.; Gillette-Koyen, Linda – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2019

The first author's initial attempts at a whole-class mathematics discussion were woefully dysfunctional. Ten second graders showing their answers to a missing addend question about the number of children left riding a school bus did not result in the mathematical epiphany that the textbook promised. She did not give up on using mathematical…

Rumsey, Chepina; Guarino, Jody; Gildea, Rachael; Cho, Christina Y.; Lockhart, Bethany – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2019

Early career K-grade 2 teachers in a yearlong project explored discourse and mathematical argumentation through monthly professional development (PD) sessions. The goal of the project was to develop an understanding of the types of K-grade 2 tasks that promote argumentation, the types of discourse and argumentation that K-grade 2 students engage…

Wood, Marcy B.; Sheldon, James; Felton-Koestler, Mathew D.; Oslund, Joy; Parks, Amy Noelle; Crespo, Sandra; Featherstone, Helen – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2019

Thinking about students in terms of participation instead of "high" or "low" achievers is more than replacing one term with another; it encourages us to shift our focus to student activity as well as barriers to and supports for productive activity. It encourages us to create classroom spaces that draw on student strengths and…

Skinner, Abbe; Louie, Nicole; Baldinger, Evra M. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2019

One of the most important jobs mathematics teachers have is supporting students and helping them to develop confidence in their own capabilities as mathematical thinkers. Children who do not believe in themselves are unlikely to share their ideas, persevere through challenges, or take risks that lead to new insights. Yet many students have no…

Karp, Karen S.; Bush, Sarah B.; Dougherty, Barbara J. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2019

Word problems are an essential component of providing a context for computation but are also recognized as an enduring struggle for students. Students are challenged to solve these story-based problems, often resorting to trial and error. This article presents meaningful alternative approaches to helping students make sense of word problems.

Livers, Stefanie D.; Harbour, Kristin E.; Fowler, Lindsey – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2019

In this article, Lindsey Fowler describes how an animal rhyme--that she shared with her fifth-grade students with the intention of assisting them with the concept of metric conversions--made fostering the Standards for Mathematical Practice (SMP) more difficult. The addition of animals, which added an extraneous element that students mistakenly…

Strayton, Marianne V.; Lawton, Lisa Watts – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2019

At the start of every school year, teachers typically wonder what their new students know coming into the grade level. Sometimes, though, they place too much emphasis on what children do not know or have forgotten over summer break. After all, those gaps can be glaring. Helping their students grow is like helping an acorn grow; they must watch for…

Batista, Lisa Nguyen; Chapin, Suzanne H. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2019

Classroom discourse is critical to helping students learn mathematics. Interacting with peers and the teacher within a classroom community assists students in building their understanding of mathematical concepts. A discourse community, sometimes referred to as a math-talk learning community, is "a classroom community in which the teacher and…

Ryan, Laura E.; Dietiker, Leslie – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2018

One way to recognize how mathematical lessons can be stimulating for children is to interpret them as stories. If mathematical lessons follow a structure similar to that of a story, they can build anticipation, create surprise, and even generate intrigue (Egan 1988). To support the design of mathematical lessons with these types of aesthetic…

Russo, James A. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2018

Three-in-a-Row Lucky Numbers is an engaging, enjoyable, mathematically meaningful, game-based activity involving dice and a hundred chart, which can be used to introduce students to multiplication. The game provides a mechanism for students to explore the structure of multiplication, experiment with the distributive property, and begin to…

Raisor, Jill M.; Hudson, Rick A. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2018

Early childhood provides a time of crucial growth in all developmental domains. Prekindergarten is an optimal time for young children to use objects of play as a medium to explore new cognitive concepts, including mathematical structure. Mathematical structure plays an important role in providing students a means to reason about mathematics,…

Kuehnert, Eloise R. A.; Eddy, Colleen M.; Miller, Daphyne; Pratt, Sarah S.; Senawongsa, Chanika – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2018

In this article, the authors describe the Japanese term "bansho," which refers to the intentional use of board space for facilitating student learning. Bansho offers a structure for sequencing mathematics visually on the board. By purposefully organizing the board space alongside the lesson, teachers can provide students with a framework…

Barlow, Angela T.; Watson, Lucy A.; Tessema, Amdeberhan A.; Lischka, Alyson E.; Strayer, Jeremy F. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2018

The inspection of mistakes can play a powerful role in an individual's learning process (Boaler 2015). The purpose of this article is to support the reader in selecting mistakes that can be leveraged to benefit the learning of all students. Specifically, the authors focus on "which" and "why": "which" mistakes to…
