Children's Literature for Kindergarten Math Talks
My students need these books for Math Talks during our Math time in Kindergarten to help students improve number sense and encourage our young students to explain their thinking.
I teach a group of Kindergarten students in a small town in Iowa. My kids are active 5-6 year olds that require lots of movement, hands-on activities, read aloud books and technology to remain engaged while becoming proficient in the requirements of the Iowa Core Curriculum. Many of the Iowa Core Standards are difficult for our kids and I am constantly searching for ways to make learning these Standards more developmentally appropriate. Kindergarten has high demands and I feel it is my job to find a way for the kids to be successful while still having FUN!
These books will be read to kindergarten students to begin math instruction and will provide an opportunity to discuss the math concepts we will be learning that day.
Reading children's literature is a developmentally appropriate way to introduce and spark my students' thinking about math concepts.
Students will then be given the opportunity to use manipulatives, conversation (Math Talks), guided practice, and independent practice to deepen their understanding of the Kindergarten Core Math Standards.
If you donate to our project, our students will get to experience quality children's stories that link directly to our Math Standards. Kindergarten students love to be read to so this will be a fun link between literature and math concepts.
