My Students

My students need high-quality picture books to learn mathematical concepts!

My students are book-loving, enthusiastic learners!

My 3rd graders are part of an amazing school that serves students in grades K-5 and provides rigorous academics, fantastic teachers, and a safe learning environment.

My 3rd graders walk into the classroom every day with huge smiles on their faces. They're excited to start their day and share their thoughts and ideas!

Their creativity is inspiring and their love of learning is infectious.

My Project

According to new research, using high-quality children's picture books in math lessons can enhance learning in many ways! Picture books build perception of math skills through pictures and text, and help students build problem-solving skills.

Math becomes more interesting when a child can make a math connection in a story.

When students are reading or listening to a book, they understand that math is used all around them.

Picture books about math not only explain a mathematical skill, but help solidify it through engaging story lines and colorful illustrations.

Help my students gain a better understanding with these engaging picture books about math!
