"Stories present a rich medium through which children can explore the Big Ideas of Math. They are particularly powerful when linked to a continuum of learning that reflects the way in which children develop mathematical concepts. This session will explore how primary educators can select stories and associated activities that engage children at just the right level, allowing them to consolidate mathematical concepts already learned and move forward with new understanding. It will present ideas on how stories can engage children in a wide range of mathematical ideas, thinking and activity, in a variety of real-world and imaginary contexts. Note: The presentation will reference the math learning progression behind the development of Pearson Canada’s Mathology Little Books.

For the session, we will use the following simple agenda:

• Participate in shared reading as pedagogy

• Develop criteria for a good math story

• Recognize the math in stories

• Using math stories in the classroom

At the end of the session, Participants will receive sample kits of the Mathology Little Books"
