Synopsis

Say it with Shapes and Numbers by Marlene Kliman

Play games, build towers, move to the beat, and go on a pretend picnic--all with math Developed by the Mixing in Math group at TERC, an education nonprofit, and based on research funded in part by the National Science Foundation, this book is packed with all kinds of math games for matching colors with numbers, comparing and counting, and simple addition and subtraction. These projects and games, which use everyday materials such as paper towel tubes and cardboard boxes, can be used as icebreakers, party games, and group activities for indoors and out as well as special events throughout the calendar year. Whether in the car, on the bus, in a waiting room, or at the dinner table, the varied games and activates in this book serve as the perfect introduction to math for young children.

Reviews

Mixing in Math

'essons'into daily activities is a fabulous step in the right direction for helping kids learn through play. An excellent step-by-step guide, it makes math fun for parents, early educators, and most of all kids. Roberta Michnick Golinkoff, professor, University of Delaware The Mixing in Math Team creates another terrific resource for parents and educators. These activities are straightforward and easy. They will help even the most math-phobic adult celebrate math in everyday life with children. Cathy Saunders, Director of Education, Providence Children'

'ixed into'everyday activities in a fun and developmentally appropriate manner. The key is everyday -- math is integral to everything we do -- and Say It with Shapes and Numbers offers us a way to hold conversations to articulate the math present in our lives. Mary Hoshiko Haughey, VP of operations for Youth Development and Social Responsibility, YMCA of Silicon Valley
