Abstract

The focus in this article is on integrating instruction in reading fluency with mathematical concept development in the primary grades. Procedures are described herein for having students engage in hands-on mathematics while reading children’s literature. In addition, students produce an audio compact disk and engage in performance reading in a readers’ theater format with stick puppets. The strategies presented can be adapted in a variety of leaning environments.
