This book was intended to help teachers and speech/language pathologists bridge the gap between language and math.

Students in primary grades meet dozens of words as they work through their math curriculum. Words representing ...

numbers operations
quantities measurement
order money
size patterns
comparison shapes

This book helps you to present these words in friendly simple activities that are different than those you'll find in curriculum math materials. Give your student with language difficulties more practice in learning words that are so important for success in math!

Not only do children meet words representing math concepts in their math curriculum, they are faced with understanding and talking about math operations. What a challenge for our language students! Many of the activities in this book draw children into simple math operations and encourage them to "talk through" these operations.

Math helps us everyday. Activities are designed to stimulate conversations and lessons where math concepts function to help quantify, manupulate and organize everyday experiences.

Working through the activities in The Language of Math For Young Learners will guide you to weave math and language concepts through your thinking and talk about what you did!
