This lesson, from ReadWriteThink, integrates reading, writing, viewing, and visually representing mathematical ideas while simultaneously strengthening home-school communication. The two math-related books used give real-world contexts to the strategy of grouping objects to be counted and follow predictable formats that support emerging readers. After reading each of the books, students explore their school and home environments to find and represent their own examples of sets. The culminating activity is a collaborative class book of sets. This lesson incorporates a variety of interactive student activities. Several pieces of literature appropriate for use with this lesson are suggested. Less
