When you think of interactive or adapted books, math might not be the first thing you think of. When we think of these books we often think of all of the language opportunities, but these books are great for teaching and reinforcing math skills too. Through interactive books we can teach numbers, sequencing, counting, coins and more! Here are some of the ways I use interactive books to support my math units.
Counting & Making Sets
We work a lot on sequencing numbers in my classroom, so I am always looking for ways to make it a little different or more exciting to keep my kiddos engaged. That’s what brought me to this sequencing set: These books have been have been great for task boxes and centers to reinforce direct instruction. My class is seriously in love with adapted books!!
This set includes 4 books total to practice time and money. I use the When Will We Do It? book to work on time awareness with students. Many of my students come to me not being able to identify the time of day an activity happens. For example, we eat dinner at night.
