MLC Virtual Bookshelf
Early in my teaching career, our school librarian modeled what it meant to know and love both kids and books. She always had a title in mind for each child, covering every imaginable topic. With the growth in math-related children's books, educators are now able to help children make connections to all kinds of mathematical concepts. For some children, a book invites math exploration, or makes ideas more approachable. For others, it's the motivation to dig deeper, or the tool that produces an "ah-ha" moment.
If you're looking to expand your math book repertoire, or would like to suggest summer reading for your students, visit the MLC Virtual Bookshelf. You'll find titles categorized by math concept. Books are also suggested to support the integrated math-science unit at each Bridges grade level.
The Virtual Bookshelf can always be accessed through Support for Bridges, green text in the right column. If you have book titles to suggest, please post your comments.
