Maintenant disponible en français!

Finally … French translations of my latest books are now available!

Je viens de traduire mes deux ressources de bonnes questions — “A Year of Good Questions for Grades 2-4” et “A Year of Good Questions for grades 5-8” — afin que mes collègues d’immersion aient des ressources françaises avec lesquelles travailler. Merci pour vôtre patience!

In these new French translations of the English originals, you’ll find more than 200 open-ended and engaging problems for french immersion students from primary through middle school.  All are posed in French and explore important mathematical concepts across the grades.

Bonnes Questions primaireThe first book: Bonnes Questions: Une année de bonnes tâches mathématiques pour les élèves de 2e à 4e is suitable for late primary students (grades 2-4) and features operational tasks, measurement tasks and pattern tasks of increasing complexity, posed in French.

 

Bonnes Questions intérmediaresThe second volume: Bonnes Questions: Une année de bonnes tâches mathématiques pour les élèves de 5e à 8e is perfect for middle school immersion students (grades 5-8), with a focus on proportional reasoning, algebraic thinking as well as operations on integers, fractions and decimals to name a few.

Engaging problems and choice make these volumes the perfect conversation starter for our immersion classrooms, promoting oral language development and mathematical thinking …en même temps!

All are available from my online store.

New Resource available for K/1 Math Classrooms!

Hello, all!

It has been some time since I have made a post here, but fear not – I have been busy in the interim!  🙂

I am very pleased to announce the release of my new book, entitled NUMBER SENSE – A Combined Grades Resource for Kindergarten and Grade 1 Math Classrooms.

As the title suggests, it has been written in support of teachers of K/1 combined classes.  The resource deals specifically with the number strand outcomes from the WNCP curriculum (the one currently in place in Canada), and does so in a way that keeps kindergarten and grade 1 learners together.  The resource includes:

• 12 lesson sequences covering all of the number strand from the K&1 curricula

• line masters for all lessons

• practice opportuntities in the form of games, centres and additional tasks

• ideas for meaningful daily routines – an alternative to calendar!

• assessment tools – both formal and informal

The cost for the resource is $30 plus $4 shipping (for 3 or more copies, shipping costs will differ).

If you’d like to order a copy, please click here to purchase online.

Thanks so much for your support…

Carole

UPDATE:  Thank you to all of those who have bought the book!  A file of select line masters drawn from the resource is attached here.  These are best printed and enjoyed in colour…
