Using Books to Provide Context for Problem Solving

I have set a goal for myself to read one children’s book each day during summer vacation but I’m not going to stop there.  I’m challenging my self to make a math connection to each book I read.  I will go to my local library each week and pick seven random books.  I don’t know if I will come up with something as great as this http://love2learn2day.blogspot.com/2011/04/sea-squares-and-snap-cubes.html, but who knows.  I hope to have a great collection of ideas to share with teachers next fall.  Stay tuned, my summer vacation starts June 9.
