Often when teaching mathematics, we are looking for alternatives to the materials and resources that come with the district provided text. There are times when we would like to read a story and have the math unfold from within the story. There are fiction and non-fiction books in school libraries, classrooms and narratives on You-Tube. These books often have a new way of doing the same old math. The article provided “Measuring Penny: Activities from children’s book can support youngsters in developing conceptions of measurement” is an example of a “read-aloud” fiction book that can be used to transfer math content into centers, activities and math learning in a new way. These read-alouds are not just for elementary students, the content in literature materials can be used in middle and high school. There are many websites that can assist you in finding a literature book on a topic Scholastic, Math Solutions, NCTM illuminations, dearteacher, and k-5mathteachingresources to name a few.
