**Additional Math Resources:**

* Number Talks* by Sherry Parrish

Published by

**Math Solutions**

A must-have for every math teacher! From the publisher: This resources was created in response to the requests of teachers—those who want to implement number talks but are unsure how to begin and those with experience who want more guidance in crafting purposeful problems. This dynamic multi-media resource supports teachers in understanding:

- how to follow students’ thinking and pose the right questions to build understanding
- how to prepare and design purposeful number talks; and
- how to develop grade-level-specific strategies for the operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division

*Number Talks*Book Study Archive**Mastering the Basic Math Facts in Addition and Subtraction**

by Susan O’Connell and Jon SanGiovanni

Published by Heinemann

Another stellar publication by Susan O’Connell and John San Giovanni–a MUST have for anyone helping students understand basic addition and subtraction facts. A rationalle for grouping and ordering facts is presented as well as a literature link lesson for each. Includes a CD with various resources, teaching tools, and assessments that are discussed in teh text. CD files are also editable.

**Putting the Practices into Action:
Implementging the Common Cores Standards for Mathematical Practice K-8**

by Susan O’Connell and John SanGiovanni

Published by **Heinemann**

About the book: When thinking about Common Core Math Standards there are two important parts—the Content Standards and the eight Standards for Mathematical Practice. There is a huge difference between the two. The content standards provided just that, content—-they are not intended to tell a teacher HOW to teach. On the other hand, the practice standards are intended to guided a teacher in developing ways of learning that take students far beyond proficiency in a particular content area but rather help them develop as thinkers. Each one of the eight practice standards are thoroughly addressed in a way that helps the reader first understand the standard. Then the authors help the reader understand “how they can get there” by providing ideas/strategies as well as student samples. This professional resource does not disappoint!

**Math Stretches: Building Conceptual Knowledge K-2**

Teachers will learn how to help student ask good questions, visualize mathematics, and synthesize their understanding of mathematical concepts. This exceptional resource also provides clear strategies to help teachers integrate children’s literature effectively and develop students’ ability to comprehend mathematical vocabulary.

*Math Games for Number and Operations and Algebraic Thinking: Games to Support Independent Practice in Math Workshops and More, Grades K-5*

by Jamee Petersen

Published by **Math Solutions**

From Publisher: These thirty-three classroom-tested games can be played successfully by learners on their own, during math workshops, or at math stations. You’ll find all-time favorites like *Circles and Stars*, *Leftovers*, *Cross Out Singles*, and *Tens Go Fish*. You’ll also discover games that you’ve likely not encountered before—as well as twists on some of your personal favorites! Tables in this resource detail how the games support teaching with the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics. Use the tables alongside your own curriculum, standards, or pacing guides to help you determine which games meet the concepts and skills you need to address with your students.
