Teach Through Books: Learn to Count

Teach Through Books: Learn to Count

Age Level: Preschool, Early Elementary
Description: This book comes with number and animal magnets that can be placed on different pages to complete math-related tasks.
Modifications: The book is designed so that the tasks get more difficult as you go. When I do use this with a student, I typically only do one page, so you can choose the page that best suits your student’s needs.
Skills: Counting, finding missing numbers, addition, subtraction, using math symbols
Pros: Great for students who love interactive books or enjoy magnets. It’s a good activity to bring out once in a while to help with generalization or reteaching. The magnets are great. I use them for multiple other activities without the book, and some of my students like to play with the magnets by themselves.
Cons: It’s not a book you can use over and over with the same student, since the page is exactly the same each time.
Cost: $18.00 (but frequently much cheaper on Amazon or at Barnes & Noble) Should I buy this? I do like this book. If you have a student who particularly enjoys magnets, interactive books, or math-related activities this will be a great purchase. As mentioned in the pros section, the magnets can be used for multiple other activities, including counting, comparing numbers, and sorting animals. However, the activities created in the books are relatively easy to reproduce.
