Current standards advocate that students will realize that developing mathematical concepts is a common human activity. Good children’s literature can help with this connection. The goal of this presentation is to provide information regarding why using children’s literature in the mathematics classroom is important. It also aims to provide general suggestions for using children’s literature, as well as specific examples of creative ways to implement literature in the math class.
