Have Some Maths with Your Story: Teaching Mathematical Concepts through Children’s Literature, Games and Activities

This book is for teachers, student teachers, teaching assistants and other practitioners interested in the education of young children with special reference to mathematics and the language of mathematics. It contains twenty photocopiable activities and games linked to children’s books or poems. There is a short section on how children learn mathematics followed by a look at how educators can effectively teach maths.

After the twenty, double page spread activity and game ideas, there is a selection of children’s books all linked to particular mathematical themes: size, time, prepositions and positional terms, shape, pattern and symmetry, counting and number, and a miscellaneous section. This is followed by some teacher text books which give help in forming a philosophy about the teaching of mathematics to young children.
