Abstract / Synopsis
In this report, we describe a joint project between a mathematics content course and literacy methods course for pre-service elementary teachers that resulted in our students writing children's mathematically themed books. Out report then focuses first on the creative process of combining mathematical knowledge and ideas for teaching with the craft of writing for children, and second on the creative connection between mathematics and literacy education at the elementary school level.
