A Winning Equation: Mur de mots pour les maths


French Immersion, School-level initiative, Fraser Valley Region, 2017-2018


We worked with a group of French Immersion (FI) teachers to determine essential math vocabulary for FI and worked to build a bank of words in French for a word wall to enhance math literacy in FI. We spent several sessions doing demo lessons of number talks, and debriefing the particular needs for FI. Those words are now being printed and made into kits for FI classes across the district. 


It was successful because we got together with a group and talked about our practice. We came out with something practical that can be shared with others.
