In our K-2 Learning Lab, we talked about mathematizing books. Mathematizing is a process of inquiring about, organizing, and constructing meaning with a mathematical lens (Fosnot & Dolk, 2001). By mathematizing books commonly available in classroom collections and reading them aloud, teachers provide students with opportunities to explore ideas, discuss mathematical concepts, and make connections to their own lives. Here is a great article by Allison Hintz (in the video below) that goes more in depth with that idea!
