I am linking up with Collaboration Cuties for their weekly mentor text linky. This week, the theme is math. I don't teach math anymore so I had to do a little more thinking to remember my favorite books. Many of them had already been linked up by others!
But here is a good one for teaching beginning multiplication and repeated addition - Each Orange Had 8 Slices by Paul Giganti, Jr.
It has wonderful illustrations, descriptions, and questions for engaging students. They can draw their own pictures and answer the questions by writing repeated addition and/or multiplication number sentences. I also like that the situations are representative of real life situations. My school library happens to have a big book of this text, which is great for doing the actual counting.
Enjoy the final day of your weekend!
