Math Read Alouds


Marilyn Burns (math education guru) has a new product called “Math Reads.”  You can see what books are included and the topics they cover here http://teacher.scholastic.com/products/math-concepts-skills/math-reads/math-books-topics.htm. Click on the Grade Levels on the left side of the page to see the books for each grade.  You may already have some of these books in your classroom or school library.  The books are published by Scholastic so you can look for them in book orders or at your next book fair.
Books can be used to-
  • introduce a new topic
  • provide and context or visual model for an abstract concept or problem solving
  • deepen understanding
  • reinforce previously taught topics.

One of the books on the first grade list is Two of Everything.  You can find a task card to go with the book here http://www.k-5mathteachingresources.com/1st-grade-number-activities.html.  Explore this site to find more math task cards to go with children’s books.
