- increase first and second graders' ability to articulate mathematical thinking
- scaffold primary students' math learning through teacher-led modeling and demonstrations
- incorporate vocabulary activities that strengthen students' use and understanding of math language and skills
- create a low risk/high success environment that engages every student in math learning
- help primary-age children use graphic organizers, including charts, graphs and Venn diagrams
- engage students in simple writing tasks that result in more productive learning
- develop students' abilities to organize, represent and communicate mathematical thinking through writing
