    You and a small group will be presenting a children’s literature book to the class that is grade appropriate for the grade you hope to teach. The book must have real mathematics concepts imbedded in the story. The rest of the class will be your “participants” as you read the story. Any manipulatives that you might need for the book are probably available in my office or the learning center downstairs (with the exception of food items). There will be a list for you to sign as to the book you and your partner want to read so there will be no duplication. You will need to make a copy of the activity plan for each student in the class.

    You may choose one of the books from this list but you are not limited to this list. You may find another book that you think is appropriate to use in the K-6 mathematics classroom.
