I heard someone was looking for the names of the books I was flashing about on Friday last. they are some of my favourite titles!!
Teaching Student Centered Mathematics – Grades K-3, 3-5 and 5-8 by John Van de Walle
These grade-band books are really wonderful – teacher resources that include the math you need to know to teach well and tasks for your children to engage in that are open-eneded and rich… blackline masters too! sigh… how I am saddened at the loss of their author…
Good Questions for Math Teaching: What to Ask and Why Ask Them – Grades K-6 and 5-8
Wow – I am digging these titles. Open-ended prompts for deep thinking, conceptual tasks that require students to engage with challenging meaningful math. The book is set up in grade bands and organized by topic… Very teacher friendly and reasonably priced!
Hope this helps…
