Reflection: Discourse and Questioning Mathematics and Literature - Section 3: Closing


You may notice in this sharing that I prompt students to notice more.  I am not trying to teach any specific math skill, but I am pushing them to think mathematically.  Looking for patterns, investigating how the words, pictures, and patterns might teach something, will become a more developed skill later.  Today's task helps set the stage, and opens up the math box in our classroom library.  The students love this "free time", as they call it.  Remember: go slow to go fast.
