Description: Nervous about teaching math to young children? Too pressed for time to teach all of the math concepts children need to know? Now there¿s a practical, stress-free guide to one of the most effective ways to enhance children¿s mathematical thinking in pre-K¿Grade 3¿by weaving math concepts into storytime. Ready for any educator to pick up and start using, this concise book gives teachers the guidance they need to find high-quality storybooks on their own bookshelf, read them to children effectively, and develop age-appropriate math problems based on the story¿s plot, characters, setting, and illustrations. This creative, field-tested approach to math instruction is a must in every classroom because it helps teachers meet NCTM guidelines; targets foundational math skills; improves literacy skills; works with any storybook; connects math with real life; keeps students engaged; and polishes teachers¿ own ¿mathematical lenses.¿ Teachers will implement the ideas in this book right away with a helpful list of more than 40 popular storybooks for teaching math and grade-specific sample lessons that model higher-level questions and problem-solving activities. The ideal way to meet high-stakes standards for math education without investing significant resources in additional curricula, this guidebook will help educators teach math with confidence and lay the foundation for their students¿ long-term success.
