A teacher's lesson narrative regarding statistics investigation

In this paper we analyze the lesson narrative of a mathematics teacher for the Elementary School. She is a member of a group developing a collaborative research as part of the 'Educational Observation Project', aiming to investigate mathematical literacy and the teaching education practices of mathematics teachers. In her narrative, she describes the statistic investigation process developed with a 1st grade group. There is evidence revealing the teacher's hints of learning related to the children's statistics literacy, mainly referring to the development of graphical language, as well as evidence of ownership of literacy practices by the teacher.
