Today, I have several resources you can use to incorporate literature into your math instruction. And don’t think literature is just for the primary classroom! Bigger kids love literature, too, and there are some great books for teaching math to older kids.
The Best Children’s Books.org has a page devoted to books for teaching math. I really like that it shows the covers of the books, which are organized by topic. Grade level, a synopsis, and a link to Amazon is included for each book.
The Reading Nook lists books by mathematical topic. A synopsis and link to purchase is provided for each book.
Mathwire.com has detailed lesson plans for using literature, many of which contain downloadable handouts.
