The Literacy Dive Podcast


Sep 13, 2021

If you don’t already know this, it may shock you, but my favorite subject is actually math. Crazy, right? There’s nothing better than when I can combine my two favorite things, math and literacy, at the same time with math word problems. In this episode I will provide you with strategies for incorporating comprehension and writing practice while also working on math.

When I was a self-contained teacher responsible for every subject, it was so important to “double dip” different subject areas. During that time I found that English Language Arts and Math teachers can benefit from this as well. If you think about it, when it comes to word problems these two areas are so interconnected so it makes perfect sense! If you try one of the strategies I mention in this episode or use the freebie, let me know what you think!

In this episode I share:

-How word problems can enhance literacy skills

-4 ways you can move beyond word problems to practice reading and writing skills

-Realistic examples for the suggested strategies

-Which reading skills can be targeted through word problems
