dc.description.abstract English language learners (ELL) often struggle to make real world connections in mathematical contexts. Using an action research model, combined with a project-based learning perspective, this study explores some of the strategies educators can employ to help ELL students understand mathematical concepts. This paper describes how five Grade 1 ELLs explored the concept of patterns in a cross-curricular fashion. The children were encouraged to investigate patterns from a mathematical, scientific, and artistic perspective. Included are digital photographs depicting student process and products. This documentation has made the learning visible to teachers, parents, and the children themselves. In honouring the ways in which children express their learning we value the contributions they make both in and outside of the classroom. en_US
