Kindergarten Literature to Enhance Math Learning
2015 Teacher Grant
Recipient: Gina Maksimchuk – Abbot Elementary School
Amount Awarded: $1,850
This grant purchased 185 books for the kindergarten classes at Abbot Elementary school. The books were chosen by a list provided by Everyday Math curriculum. The books are related to mathematics concepts being taught at each level. The books all feature concepts such as shapes, counting, sorting, addition, and more. Reading a story before teaching a correlating lesson facilitates math/literature connection as well as enhance the math lesson. The books help the students to make connections between the math concept and the story or help them understand the concept in a slightly different way.
The books will be stored all together to facilitate easy access for kindergarten teachers to use when they teach math, and would be available in the library.
