This book isn't published yet but it was available on the Stenhouse website so I read it online...Fantastic! I know the way we teach math doesn't make any sense but I've never been able to figure out how to get kids to see math in the real world. Reading this book made me say "DUHH" out loud many times. I will certainly get it when it is published next month!

I would highly recommend this book to primary teachers who are ready to transform their math instruction and create a math workshop. Kassia makes thoughtful connections between literacy workshops and math workshop as she guides the reader through the Cognitively Guided Instruction that she uses. Her "Try it out" sections made it very easy to implement in my classroom! I've already put many of her ideas to use and am looking forward to transforming my first graders into mathematical thinkers!
