My students need books like If You Were a Fraction, Divide and Ride, and A Place For Zero in the classroom to promote and build literacy while learning math concepts.
"I can read!" This is a statement I want all of my 6th grade math students to make by the end of the year. My students struggle with basic mathematical terms which hinders their math potential. We start our day with vocabulary integrated with our mental math. I want to add daily reading.
My 6th graders are a group of rambunctious students with varying abilities, interests, and experience.
They are from the highest area of poverty within the district. Most of students are on free or reduced lunch. Books in the home are few or none. Our greatest area of underachievement is in literacy. If we can promote literacy in all content areas, our students will definitely excel in all other content areas as well. In spite of their reading deficiencies, our students are highly motivated and have a thirst for knowledge. With the implementation of content area books within each subject, we can increase literacy while increasing achievement for all our students.
The math content centered books, like If You Were a Fraction, Divide and Ride, and A Place For Zero, will promote literacy in our classroom, while providing an opportunity for our students to increase math vocabulary and comprehension. Students will have the opportunity to read about the importance of mathematical concepts such as fractions and division. They will see that literacy is essential in all content areas.
Promoting literacy in all content areas will have students to increase their vocabulary and comprehension.
When all teachers can provide a relevant classroom library in their content we will begin to close the achievement gap. We want all student to be avid readers.
