Linking Non-Fiction Works to Blog Posts
With the end of the school year quickly approaching, I would like to link some non-fiction literature to a few blog posts from earlier in the year. It makes sense to use good books to support some of the lesson ideas and strategies presented in these posts. The titles I have selected are all available from the Scholastic Teacher Book Wizard, and are currently in stock.
David M. Schwartz does an excellent job of introducing and elaborating on mathematical terms and ideas in this alphabet math book. G is for Googol supports math terms used in the blog ideas from Pumpkin Pi: Fall Celebrations and Circumference, Surface Area and Geodesic Domes, and Circumference + Bubbles = Too Much Fun. The illustrations are entertaining and enhance the topics being presented. I use this book as supplemental material when I introduce/review Pi. It is a great resource for reinforcing mathematical vocabulary and at $6.95, I often give it as door prizes when I am presenting at conferences or providing in-service to other educators.
