Do you teach math to Spanish-Speaking ELLs (especially K-8)? If so, Math for ELLs is for you. There is a myth that "math is math" and there is no language involved; yet ELLs are not doing well in this subject. About three quarters of ELLs speak Spanish at home--this book focuses on these students. Make math come alive for Spanish-speaking ELLs. You will grasp the strategies as easy as "uno, dos, tres!"

Dr. Ewing's new book is a breakthrough! It has a rare blend of evidence, real stories, practical applications and myth-busting. Any school (or teacher) with second language students will relish the valuable tools and strategies that raise the love of math and boost student learning.--Eric Jensen, author of Teaching with the Brain in Mind, and international consultant on brain-based learning Dr. Ewing combines his experience of serving as a practitioner, including teaching experience in Spain, with years of study and research. Using the term EBs (emergent bilinguals) rather than ELLs, he teaches us to place our focus on what students CAN do and build from there. Thank you Dr. Ewing for sharing your passion for improving how we provide the best math instruction for Spanish speaking students. This book will no doubt change the course of success for many students in years to come!--Belinda Neal, EdD, Associate Executive Director for Instruction Texas Elementary Principals and Supervisors Association (TEPSA) Dr. Ewing offers a fresh perspective on instructional and relational skills that teachers can employ to elevate non-English speaking students' success in math, and he provides specific action steps to guide teachers through implementation. As classrooms become increasingly multicultural, these practices will be critical for the teaching profession and growth of students.--Rhonda McCallie, Med, CIA Coordinator Region 7 Education Service Center (Kilgore, TX) From Children's literature suggestions to instructional tips, this book offers specific, research-based suggestions to support Emergent bilinguals to become confident, competent doers of mathematics. An excellent classroom resource, and great for a book study!--Jennifer Bay-Williams, National leader, author in mathematics education
