I was once told that Math and Reading were the most important subjects. Never did I really understand that these two subjects were meant to be used together instead of separately. Once I came to the realization, I made it my goal to get this accomplished. When merging two subjects like math and reading, you get more than what you bargained for. Students in these classrooms will greatly benefit from reading math books by not only attaining reading skills, but math academic vocabulary. We need math mentor books to help them learn a concept or skill and become life long learners. Our titles include Too Many Kangaroo Things to Do, 100 Days of Cool, A Fair Bear Share and more. What better way to differentiate a math the lesson than with a book! Students will find out that illustration, words and numbers all intertwine and are part of our daily life. The students will continue learning and eventually transfer skills used in the books into math word problems, math writing prompts, and critical thinking skills to name a few. Reading and Math we cannot go without.
