K-5 Monthly Math Workgroup: Using Children's Books to Increase Student Learning in Math

This month's K-5 workgroup for K-5 teachers is sponsored by Kalamazoo's very own Bookbug! Register to attend now and be entered in a drawing to win a basket of books from Bookbug!

Are you a K-5 math teacher who wants to know more about integrating children's books into your math lessons? If so, come to this month’s Math Workgroup at Kalamazoo RESA.
We will spend time looking at various children’s books and discussing ways to use them to enhance the mathematics learning in your classroom. You will leave with literature resources that will help you to plan lessons that integrate children’s books into your math instruction.
