Learning Progressions
 I can demonstrate mathematical flexibility to show what I know more than one way.
 I can show my work so that a reader understands without asking questions.
Homework:
 Mathematize a read aloud
 Select a book
 Identify the math standard
 Anticipate what learners will notice and wonder as well as how they will “do the math”
 Implement your mathematized read aloud (if appropriate for this topic)
 Bonus points if someone observes your read aloud and tweets
