Description

This collection of articles and lessons provides classroom examples of how to use children's literature to teach mathematics effectively in prekindergarten through eighth grade. The articles focus on five content strands number and operations, algebra, geometry, measurement, and data analysis and probability and describe how the different authors have used specific books to help their students learn mathematics. Most of the articles involve communication, problem solving, representation, and reasoning, and some of them address connections. Helpful teacher notes indicate the grade range, topic, literature selection featured in the lesson, materials needed, discussion of the mathematics, and questions for students. Blackline masters of recording sheets are also included for most lessons. -- Provided by publisher
