"This is a fantastic collection of engaging and meaningful routines, a must-own for K-5 teachers. For teachers, the instructions are straightforward and the examples very helpful. For students, these are fun and challenging! For both, there are so many great routines, they won't get `old' and the routines address a great mix of mathematics (whole numbers, fractions, operations, geometry, etc.) and learning tools (number lines, pictures, graphic organizers, etc.). Estimation, such a difficult and important topic, is effectively addressed in numerous routines! I will be sharing the ideas from this book with teachers at all levels-Elementary Mathematics specialists and preservice teachers-helping them to see how many ways they can engage students in mathematical reasoning and sense-making!" -- Jennifer M.
