Deepening Math Understanding

Grade 1 students are mathematicians! Teachers Lily Kawer and Rachel Warach are challenging their students to deepen their math thinking and widen their pool of strategies. Students read the number stories and ask themselves: "What is this problem asking of me? How can I communicate my thinking to others?" This challenging work not only strengthens their math skills, but pushes them to persevere through challenging tasks.
