I awoke long enough to join up with the second week of First Grade and Fabulous' fantastic linky party, Picture Book Linky Party!
This week, it is all about picture books for teaching math concepts. I love to use picture books, and definitely love to incorporate them into all subjects. I am also always looking for new picture books, so I am looking forward to seeing what other books people have on their lists of noteworthy titles on the subject of math (that sentence seemed way too wordy - it must be my Summer brain kicking in!).
So, onto my list:
#1 The Greedy Triangle by Marilyn Burns
I was first introduced to this book by my math professor and university and think it is so fantastic and fun for teaching shapes.
#2 How Big is a Foot? by Rolf Myller
Another cute book that sets the stage for a fun measurement activity.
#3 How Much is a Million? by David M. Schwartz
This one is fun to help students visualize and (attempt to) understand large numbers.
#4 Math Curse by Jon Scieszka
I'll leave off with Math Curse - a fun, math-filled story for older kids.
Can't wait to see what titles made it onto everyone else's lists!
