Savannah Dreams

A delightful picture book, with a simple story about Savannah and her family as they go hunting in the bush. Over Sunday to Friday, the rest of the family discover lots of delicious bush tucker and count how many crabs or snakes or waterlily stems they have caught or collected, but Savannah finds only junk. That is until Sunday, when Savannah makes the greatest catch of all.

Is it the Literacy of Numeracy or the Numeracy of Literacy? Years: F to 3

The ability to think flexibly in mathematics is an important skill to acquire from the start of the mathematics journey. There are a range of strategies to assist this development and many of these strategies can be driven by stories and mathematics language. Young students should be given the opportunity to manipulate materials, draw the mathematics and communicate their knowledge. There are graphic organisers which assist and organise their thinking that link to mathematics type stories. These mathematics ideas link to problem solving, reasoning, number, word problems and early algebraic thinking.
