5 Little Monkeys
Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed - Eileen Christelow

In this book, it talks about monkeys jumping on a bed, one falls off each time and bumps their head. In my classroom I would want to read this book to my students and incorporate a math lesson with it. Each time a monkey fell off the bed we would stop and count the Monkeys. As a class we would also talk about subtraction and how the monkeys are being subtracted each time someone falls off. The students could then go back to their seats and I would have simple practice subtraction problems for them to do. I would not use numbers, but monkeys to help relate the text to better understand subtraction.


Intended Audience/Grade Level: Kindergarten-First Grade.

Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons
Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons - Eric Litwin,James Dean

OH MY WORD! This book is so much fun! I have only known about Pete the Cat for a few months and I knew book after I heard about the series. Pete the Cat is ready to go outside and enjoy his day when all of a sudden, one of his buttons pops off! Pete the Cat loses all of his buttons throughout the book but then realizes he has a button that he forgot he had! This book incorporates math while reading. Each time Pete loses a button, they show a math equation to represent what just happened to his buttons. For example, Pete begins his day with 4 buttons and when the first button pops off, there is a page specifically for the math equation. It will say 4-1=3! I would show this book off by having a students dress up in a yellow jacket with 4 buttons tapped to the jacket and each time Pete loses a button in the book, I would have the student take a button off the jacket. This way, the book can come alive for those students. This book is for kindergarten or first grade. The level of the book is 2.0
