Instant Math Storymats with Hands-on Activities for Building Essential Primary Math Skills, Grades K-2.
Spann, Mary Beth
This book contains 18 reproducible Math Storymats which can be a refreshing addition to any early elementary math program. Each storymat is accompanied by two separate read-aloud story selections that guide children in using plastic disk-shaped markers to interact with the mats in specific and open-ended ways. Together the mats and the manipulatives help children explore and practice math skills and concepts. Each storymat is accompanied by guides to two different activities. Each guide consists of target skills, materials list, steps for the activity, read-aloud story, math talk tips, and journal extensions. The storymats include such subject areas as: On the Playground; Mr. Cook's Kitchen; The Fruit Orchard; A Walk in the Woods; Cityscape; By the Sea; In the Toystore; and Baking Cookies. (JRH)
