Summary "This book for kindergarten through grade 2 classrooms presents an innovative approach to reinforcing young students' math skills. Designed for use during transition times, these minilessons are easy to implement, require little or no preparation, take only 5 to 15 minutes to teach, and can be used with any math program. The 27 engaging activities help students practice math concepts, skills, and processes by applying them in a variety of problem-solving contexts throughout the school day. Content areas explored include number and operations; algebra; geometry; data analysis and probability; and measurement. Each activity includes an explanation of the mathematics involved, a list of key questions to ask, a brief vignette, and ideas for extending the activity throughout the school year."--pub. desc.
