Activity ObjectiveTo become familiar with the Sunshine State Standards in Mathematics, use literature and writing in the classroom with students, observe how math can be integrated into the curriculum with modifications for ELLs.
Activity DescriptionThis module will have candidates collect a variety of children's books that teach some kind of mathematics or introduce mathematics. Candidates will also play one or more mathematical games with children and have the children write about their experiences. Modifications and accommodations for ELLs should also be evident in this assignment. Candidates will then write a reflection on how mathematics and literacy can support each other.

ESOL Performance Standard(s) and Indicator(s)5.1
Activity ObjectiveTo become more observant of how children use mathematics in their play; begin to develop confidence in children's play as an avenue for learning; begin to formulate your own ideas about how to teach mathematics and what materials and methods you will use including play as a method; gain a deeper understanding of mathematics in the classroom
Activity DescriptionFor this module, candidates observe children while they are involved in play. Candidates will use the Mathematical Play Analysis Form insert to guide observations of children¡¯s play and how mathematics is a natural occurrence during playtime. Candidates must look over classroom materials in advance to be sure students have materials to support mathematical thinking such as different sized dolls in the play area, blocks, manipulatives, measuring tools, calculators, menus, ELL resources and materials, etc in dramatic play area and books that may support a mathematics play theme. For teachers who do not have regular play centers, candidates may use games for this mathematical play analysis. Be sure the games have mathematics.
