I wanted to share another great resource for building number sense and developing numerical fluency. I have only read the first book in this three book series, but it was phenomenal. If you’ve been reading the Kathy Richardson book we’ve been discussing for Book Study Mondays, and the methods she uses for adding and subtracting numbers leave you a bit unsettled, this book will help fill in those gaps. In addition to the casebook, you can also get a facilitator’s guide. GREAT for a staff book study.
SO many helpful resources out there!
I know! It makes my head spin sometimes, Amy. Drives me crazy when I know I’ve read something, but can’t remember what book it was in!
Thank you, Donna! I love your updates on all the great books and resources out there. I teach first grade, so building number sense and working with tens is at the top of the list.

You’re welcome, Mona. 🙂
Those books are great resources! I think I have pretty much all of them because those were our textbooks in my Master’s program. Thanks!! 🙂
I love the entire series. Each summer, sessions for teachers and coaches are facilitated at Mt. Holyoke College where some of the book authors are facilitators. My experience there was amazing—stretched my mathematical thinking!

Wow, what a great experience!
