I love to integrate literature into my math lessons! (I’m all about read alouds, so anytime I can incorporate them into a lesson I do!) Are you the same way?
These activities are seriously my FAVORITE way to teach math concepts because each one is tied to a picture book that covers the same topic! They’re also really hands-on so they keep students engaged. (Which is most definitely a plus! 😉) I’ve used these activities with my own students for years and they’re always a hit! Take a peek inside each one!
Measurement – Inch by Inch by Leo Lionni
For this game, the students use the worms to measure each bird and then write their answers on a recording sheet. A fun alternative is to use gummy worms to measure the birds! If the students work hard, I always let them eat their gummy worms at the end! It’s a great motivator! 😉
I really hope your students enjoy these activities as much as mine have! To check them out, click HERE or the image below! Happy Teaching!
