This post will share with you some of the lessons I recently taught this week connecting literacy and math.
Last week we read the story by Ellen Stoll Walsh. This week we have been using this story to create mice story problems. During Shared Reading Time, we learned the poem and made little mice to go our poem chart. We added this poem to our Poetry binders. During word study time we recorded words with the ICE chunk.

This week we added story problems to math workshop. We went back to Mouse Count and created mice problems. I made this easy chart so I can quickly use a dry erase marker and I wanted to use the number line to give my students another visual tool. You can download a problem solving sheet with or without the number line.
