Big ideas in math come to life as teachers explore the connection to reading exceptional stories involving math concepts. Integrating children’s literature with math brings meaning to children through helping them realize the variety of real-life situations where math is used. In this workshop, participants are encouraged to participate in modeling lessons in number sense, numbers and operations, data collection, algebraic thinking, geometry, and measurement, while also exploring math in various pieces of children’s literature, including The Very Greedy Triangle, Inch by Inch, and Three Pigs, One Wolf, and Seven Magic Shapes. Mathematical concepts are all around us—this workshop helps to awaken professionals to become alive to the possibilities.
