Pub. Date:

One difficult aspect of teaching mathematics in the early grades is tying the subject to other areas of the curriculum, particularly the central core language arts. Mathematics need not-indeed it should not-stand alone, nor must it be allied only to science.

In Books You Can Count On , teachers can explore opportunities for relating math to reading. This teaching resource for primary schools provides a wide range of ideas for teaching mathematics through literature and can be used with any math program. The book includes: a mathematical overview, background information, notes on classroom organization, assessment, and evaluation, and lesson outlines based on forty different stories and poems. Each activity includes a synopsis, preparation for teaching, mathematical aims, evaluation notes, and suggestions for extension; mathematical themes such as size, classification, and spatial relations; and a list of further references.
