Subject: Re: K-2 math lesson
Your idea of starting with a trade book is a good one. Here are two of my favorites for that level: Not Enough Room by Joanne Rocklin deals with two sisters who need to share a room and divide that room in half several ways. It has some lesson ideas at the back of the book. You could do a mini-lesson on the concept of "fair shares." How Big is a Foot? by Rolf Myller deals with measurement and why we have standard units called a foot. You could have the kids measure things with their feet, record the number of steps it takes, and discuss the differences. Good luck! - Susan
