Tuesday Teacher Tips: Summer Reading
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.
This month I was able to hear Beth Skipper, journal editor of Teaching Children Mathematics present on including literature in the math classroom. She brought in a cartful of her personal library of math-related literature, and I’ll admit, I was excited; I love finding new titles to use in the classroom.
Since the workshop, I’ve taken full advantage of my public library’s services and checked out a stack of picture books. (Don’t worry. I’ll share my reading lists in upcoming blogs!) I’ve also ordered a copy of New Visions for Linking Literature and Mathematics by David J. Whitin and Phyllis Whitin (2004). I’m checking my mailbox daily for its arrival!
What are you reading this summer? Have you found any professional development books that have piqued your interest? What math-related literature do you use in your classroom? I’d love to hear about the books and highlight them in an upcoming blog.
