What is some of your favorite math literature that you read to your students?
The Greedy Little Triangle by Marilyn Burns..I know this book by heart. My son had an obsession with this book when he was little. :lol:
There is a book about a lemonade stand that I found last year. It covers graphing, supply and demand and several other comments. You could do a search for it. My 5th graders loved it!!!
Shel Silverstein's poem, "If I were one inch tall" is great with measurement.

"The Grapes of Math"
The "Sir Cumference" books
i also love the greedy triangle.
I love the M&M books for division and multiplication.
Love Shel Silverstein's poems. I also used "Smart" when I taught about money with 2nd graders.
I like that one too!
Some of my favorites that I have used with 4th grade:
The Number Devil: A Mathematical Adventure by Hans Magnus Enzensberger
The Adventures of Penrose the Mathematical Cat by Theoni Pappas
Math Trek: Adventures in the Math Zone by Ivars Peterson
These are some great books!
A Fly on the Ceiling is a fun way to introduce coordinates (Cartesion System).
Have used this lesson plan, as well as mystery pictures to plot coordinates. Both worked very well.
Have not used these two,yet.
Separate names with a comma.
