Hooray! This project is fully funded
Stuart J. Murphy writes wonderful books that allow students to visualize math concepts in a story format. These books help students to look at math in real world examples. I have used some of the books in the past and my students loved them. I would like to own a set of the Stuart J. Murphy books to have a math library in the classroom. The set of books would be available to students for independent reading, used in whole group instruction, and be tested in Accelerated Reader. I plan to use the books weekly to read aloud to the class. The books would then be read again in small group settings and the children would describe the math concept in his own words in a journal. This will help the students to visualize the concept, clarify any questions, and use the literature to explain the learning in words and pictures he can understand. I am excited about using the Stuart J. Murphy books since 78% of learners are visual learners. Often when they can "see" the math applied to real life situations, they can apply it more confidently. Thank you for considering my proposal and helping my students become more confident and able mathematicians.
