In this lesson launch, we see a third-grade teacher using reading comprehension strategies to help children understand a math story problem. Using a Three Reads strategy helps children understand what is happening in the story and reason about the numerical relationships before making any calculations. By doing so, these children are developing the Common Core Standard for Mathematical Practice, making sense of a problem and persevering to solve it.
