Summer Reading Project – 2014

In 2012, I challenged myself to read a children’s book each day of summer vacation and make a connection to mathematics. http://www.pinterest.com/DDibley/summer-reading-project-2012/ In 2013, I did the same thing, but I intentionally looked for children’s books that had a math connection. http://www.pinterest.com/DDibley/summer-reading-project-2013/

This summer, I’m going to focus on multicultural literature for children.  I will also look for web resources and write math problems to go with each book. http://www.pinterest.com/DDibley/summer-reading-project-2014/

So far, I’ve found two resources to help me identify books.  Good Books Good Math: Integrating Multicultural Literature and Mathematics Problem Solving, 1991,  Jenkins, M., Lehmann, L., Maas, J., Marten, B., Wells, K., Woods, P. Madison Metropolitan School District:  Madison Wisconsin.  25 Books that Diversify Kids’ Reading Lists this Summer http://blogs.kqed.org/mindshift/2014/06/25-ideas-to-diversify-reading-lists-this-summer/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+kqed%2FnHAK+%28MindShift%29
