Numeracy is the ability to deal with numbers comfortably. Some children come by that ability naturally; others do not. For those who don’t, the problem often stems from trouble with the language of numbers. These students often learn arithmetic concepts with difficulty, process problems slowly, and compute inaccurately, even when they know the algorithms. Many of them also do not read fluently and cannot process written arithmetic easily. Often they come to school with a great deal of mathematical knowledge. Nimble Numeracy will help you help those students to unlock that knowledge.

The activities in this book are easy to do with individuals, small groups, or whole classes of students. Suggested wording for the teacher is included, but it is not a script that must be followed. It just models what needs to be done and what kind of response is expected of the students.
A detailed, easy-
Fluency with the language of numbers is a major theme.
“.... The book’s strength is that it demonstrates a consistent pattern of instruction. Direct instruction is followed by oral practice and writing numerals and number words. The author discusses areas that might be difficult for students...and suggests how to practice to build fluency.... Teachers of primary and middle elementary grades will find this book useful for developing number concepts and the fluency that children need to build a strong sense of number.”
