Looking for effective ways to teach math concepts to your little learners? Consider incorporating math-themed books into your curriculum! Here are some of my favorite Math Read Alouds For Little Learners that are perfect for kindergarten classrooms.
Read aloud books are a valuable tool to incorporate into any kindergarten classroom. When it comes to math, read aloud books can help little learners build a strong foundation of mathematical concepts while also making learning fun and engaging. Here are some ways to incorporate read aloud books into your kindergarten math curriculum:
- Choose books that focus on counting, shapes, patterns, and other math concepts. Some great examples include “Ten Black Dots” and “Big Box of Shapes“.
- Use read aloud books to introduce new math concepts or reinforce ones that have already been taught. After reading a book, lead a discussion to help children make connections between the story and the math concepts.
- Incorporate math activities that relate to the book into your lesson plans. For example, after reading “Chicka Chicka 123“, have your students practice with Digital Counting Mats Chicka Chicka Coconut Count & Match 1-10 Boom Cards™ or “Count & Match Coconut Numbers 1-30“.
- Encourage your little learners to use math vocabulary when discussing the books and related activities. This will help them build a strong foundation of mathematical language.
