Math Picture Books - Linky Party #2

DeeAnne had such a great idea!  I love these linky parties.  I am "Going home" in the fall and teaching first grade for the first time in 15 years and I can't wait.  On top of that, I will also have some Kinders (First time for K).  It has been a long time since I've updated my personal library so these Linky Parties are a tremendous help.  I have so many books on my wish list on Amazon that I think I need a second job!  Anyway, this week's theme is Math Picture Books.  Thanks to Pinterest, I've found a ton of great books.  Common Core is going to allow us to go back to integrated theme teaching, which in my opinion, is the most effective style.  Of course, to do that, I need books - LOTS of books.  So, here are a few of the math picture books I am most excited to use.

The first three deal with addition and subtraction.  I love the way that the first two define the concepts of addition and subtraction.  The text will be readable for my young readers, and the great pictures and fun words should make them both Old Favorites.

 Tyrannosaurus Math should be an instant hit.I know that I have more boys than girls in my class - and what boy doesn't love dinosaurs. 

I am always looking for fun ways to help students learn to skip count.  I use songs, rhymes, etc.  Now, I will also these books.

Eggs and Legs: Counting by Twos.

Lots of Ladybugs: Counting by Fives

Toasty Toes: Counting by Tens

Next, I found Mouse Shapes.  I remember seeing this book in another classroom, but I've never used it.  It will be a great intro to the geometry CCSS.

 Finally, I found a book called The Great Graph Contest.  This is the first book I've come across that introduces graphing to primary students.  It even contains directions for students to make their own graphs.

I can't wait to see what other books I am going to have to add to my wish list.  Be sure to check out DeeAnne's blog, First Grade and Fabulous,  to follow other posts.

Happy Blogging!

    Wow, first grade after a break away! You'll love it! :) Great book choices. I have seen the Great Graph Contest before, but I've never read it. I may NEED it! :)

    Despite the fact that I found this specific post genuinely interesting, I couldn’t help but to ponder whether or not the statistics you used are accurate. That claim seems fairly odd to me. Any thoughts whether or not it’s actually a fact?
