How can Math and ELA be taught together? And why should they be?

Staff Development Specialist Jody Popple led a full-day workshop on Friday about Integrating Math and Literature, geared toward K-5 teachers in the region.

The 35 participants learned how they can help students better understand math concepts, engage in math instruction and build math skills by using literacy-based instruction and ELA strategies. Teachers had opportunities to complete hands-on activities, use manipulatives and share ideas that incorporated both math and literacy skills.

Elementary teachers who attended the workshop were from Madison, Oneida, Rome, Stockbridge Valley, MOBOCES, NYSSD, Little Falls, Mount Markham, Utica and Herkimer BOCES.
