Literature-Based Workshops for Mathematics: Ideas for Active Learning Grades K-2.
Morrison, Kathy; Dittrich, Tina; Claridge, Jill
This book presents ways to use high quality children's literature to plan small group workshops in mathematics for K-2 instruction. Each of the six sets of workshops is built around storybooks children love and focuses on a specific aspect of numeracy: shapes, counting, seriation, addition, money, and measurement. Each set is designed for a specific grade level but is easily adapted to other ages. An introductory section explains the active learning, small-group workshop process and provides tips for planning successful workshop experiences. Workshop plans include story summary, workshop instructions, materials list, key learning experiences, assessment suggestions, follow-up activities, modifications for children with special needs, and masters for student instruction cards.
