Math Work Stations Chp 5

I agree with many of the kindergarten teachers that have posted of how crucially important it is to use number stories from the beginning of the school year to help with the concept of addition and subtraction. I have used the resources Math Their Way, Developing Number Concept with Unifix Cubes and Explorations ( an out of print Addison-Wesley product) to develop my math program for years. Math series come and go in my school system, but I've never found any thing better than the above mentioned resources. Work Jobs II has many story mats.
I am a collector of math literature and I  begin as many lessons as possible with a math related story. I also have props for many of my books and the children then use them for additional experiences with the book. There are several math literature related pages on my website that have lots of  information. I am constantly on the lookout for puppets, stuffed animals and small manipulatives to make the story more engaging. 

Below are a few of the things you can find on my website.

Go to Math Literature on Linda's Learning Links for more ideas!

I am so glad you commented on my blog so that I could find you. Your link to your web site with all the math literature resources could not have come at a better time. I will have a student who is blind next year and I was looking for ideas for manipulatives that he could touch that were most like real objects. I can't wait to dig deeper into your blog and site.
