USING CHILDREN’S BOOKS IN MATH

Course No. MA400i, MA500i

Studies have shown that there is a connection between mathematics and reading. This course will help Pre K–3rd grade teachers incorporate and combine these two skills in a manner that is fun and meaningful to their students. When math is presented in such a manner it allows students to more easily make connections and therefore more easily be internalized. This class can be easily modified to fit the needs of any K-3 language or math program. Participants will be encouraged to use books that they already use in their classrooms as well as books that are easy to locate at their local or school libraries.
