Teaching English through Math?

Math has never been my strong subject .... so teaching English through Math was something of a challenge for me!

The large yellow ball I brought along, proved to be an excellent tool for teaching math. The students stood in a circle, and before they tossed the ball to another student, they had to call out a math problem in English! The student who caught the ball had to give the correct answer, and then.... come up with their own problem.

Flash cards, whether with the whole class, or individually, also proved to be an excellent way for students to practice not only their math skills but also their English skills too. Numbers have to be some of the toughest when learning a new language. These students did great!
