Welcome to What to Read Wednesday! I'm so glad to see you. If you're a blogger, please join our family friendly link up at the end of this post. Last week's most popular post in our link up party was:
How to Help Kids Make Discerning Media Choices by Kids in the Word
Picture Books in Teaching Math
No matter where you go or what you do, you are always teaching something to someone, whether that is on-purpose instruction, or just plain observation. It should not be a surprise to us then that picture books and the stories they tell can also be used to teach. Today, I'm going to share several books with you that teach different math concepts.
Math Picture Books
The Power of Picture Books in Teaching Math, Science, and Social Studies: Grades PreK-8 by Lynn Columba – I have not read this one yet, but I ran across it recently and added it to my wish list. She takes 25 children's books and gives you a lesson plan for teaching a math, science or social studies lesson with that picture book. Can't wait to get it!
The Grapes of Math by Greg Tang – A book of math riddles
The Sir Cumference series by Cindy Neuschwander teaches geometry using pictures and tales of a knight who must solve mysteries and complete quests.
