Speaking of Math, Fluency Poems for Partners

image16

Reading is useful, even in Math

These funny, fun, and complex two voices poems are just the ticket for learning math standards, and for strong readers they improve literacy through partner reading and reading out loud. From smelly cats to beans in a troll's nose, Argh's a Plenty, and Dinosaur Teeth, there is a lot to love and great work to be accomplished. 


Best Practices

 The Common Core Standards addressed in this book focus on Number and Operation in Base Ten, the cornerstone of k-6 mathematics.  

For early math fluency these stories can be read with younger grades to add great fun to their math learning. The joy can be doubled with the added use of manipulatives.   

For older students the reading level makes for great fun in learning to read out loud and with a partner, because the poems are designed to be of a higher reading level, but also for maximum fun! The will elicit giggles and laughter as kids will ask to read them again and again!
