Extension: Redefining What Counts as Literacy to Include Family and Community Resources

ByCorey Drake, Lori Norton-Meier

I really liked the math walk. I thought it was so cool to have the students out in their playground looking for math. I think it is such a great idea to have students look at their everyday lives for math. It comes out in the most unexpected places. What I really enjoyed was the way we connected it to literacy by having the students use the photos to write their own [story] problems. Using literacy along with math I think really made their learning meaningful.
