I am a first grade teacher at a Title 1 School. Many of our students do not have a background that provides for many experiences inspiring knowledge and vocabulary for higher level learning and thinking skills. I would like to be able to provide good instructional materials for my students through a series called "Number Tales." This series includes 16, 8x10 storybooks that all revolve around numbers. Number sense is the number 1 objective in first grade here in North Carolina. At the end of every marking period there is an in-depth assessment and number sense is always included. Children must first have a good, solid understanding of numbers and their meaning before they can begin to compute and solve problems with them. I feel that "Number Tales" is a suitable way to embellish the first grade curriculum with literature and fun. I have also found some much need manipulatives that would go nicely with many of the stories. Thank-you for your time and consideration.
