Building Number Sense Through the Common Core
Build a lasting foundation for math proficiency right from the start
The “math” is on the wall: unless we can instill in our youngest mathematicians a solid understanding of number sense, they have little hope of mastering the more rigorous fractions and algebra that lie ahead. A key piece is identifying precisely where K-3 students are likely to struggle, then intervening with smart, targeted instruction. That’s where Witzel and Riccomini’s Building Number Sense Through the Common Core fits in.
Grounded in research-supported instruction with aligned assessments to ensure comprehension, this essential resource provides:
- Teaching strategies that build number sense skills, including quantity and cardinality, numeral/number recognition, fact fluency, math language, and more
- Adaptations for students with specific needs, including English learners and students with disabilities, based on an RTI approach
- Guidance on measuring number sense through assessments and preparing students for standardized testing
- User-friendly charts, tables, and sample math problems for planning curriculum and lessons
Discover strategies that enable your students to develop a fundamental sense for numbers and create a lasting foundation for math proficiency!
