Tuesday Teacher Tips: We Love to Read—About Math!
Welcome to the Tuesday Teacher Tips series! Each week we’ll highlight teaching and learning resources, ideas to use in the classroom, as well as things to ponder as you go about your teaching day.
In honor of NEA’s Read Across America Day on March 2nd, we’d like to highlight past blogs about math literature that you can use in your classroom to teach and reinforce math concepts. Click on the link to take you to a past DreamBox blog entry to find out about the book and ways to incorporate it into your classroom.
Since March 2nd is Dr. Seuss’ birthday we’ll start out with The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins.
