The article depicts two mathematical lessons in a first grade classroom that incorporate literacy throughout to increase students’ knowledge and understanding of the mathematical concepts. The first lesson uses the book, The Doorbell Rang (1987) to introduce sharing and dividing, and the second lesson incorporate the book, The Penny Pot (1998) to reinforce counting money. In both lessons, the students explore mathematics through read-alouds, problem solving, classroom discussions, and manipulative use. The article presents the two different lessons in detail and includes classroom discussions to illustrate the students’ thinking process, understanding, and discovery of the two different mathematical concepts being taught in the classroom.
