|We gave Golden Rulers to last year's Math Night participants.|
Kathryn Otoshi books entitled Zero and One.
|Here's One of the books I shared.|
During the stories, I stopped a few times to asked how the numbers felt. When I inquired what that's called when you care about and can understand how someone else is feeling, each time a student was able to answer empathy - yay!
After reading the stories aloud, I posed the question:
How do you know that you count at our school?
Here's the bibliography I made available at my station of twelve books with a character theme that have a numbers-or-shapes-related connection,
making them easy to integrate into a math lesson.
Zero by Kathryn Otoshi (place value/self-esteem)
Billy Bully: A school-yard counting tale by Alvaro and Ana Galan (counting/respect)
