The best thing to do is become a member of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) and subscribe to their <I>Arithmetic Teacher</I> journal. There are TONS of ideas on every aspect of teaching mathematics. There is a usually some part that connects math to literature or a story. The Middle School journal has a section called Cartoon Corner which is just GREAT! If you can get your hands on some older issues you can see what I mean. NCTM's Web site might have a listing of books appropriate for different grade levels, too.
