Description - What If Your ABCs Were Your 123s? by Leslie G. Minton

This book will help primary and elementary teachers to transform the way they think about and teach mathematics. Many teachers feel confident about their preparation and strategic repertoire for literacy instruction but are less confident about their preparation and content depth for teaching math. This book will make visible the parallels between what elementary teachers already know about teaching literacy and help them make connections to numeracy instruction to improve their students' achievement in mathematics. Teachers can carry their literacy strength straight into their math instruction. Readers will gain a detailed, comprehensive understanding of the crossovers connections between literacy and numeracy to deepen their own mathematics content knowledge and be more confident and successful in their instruction of elementary mathematics.
