As the students identify attributes of objects, they also learn about flat and three-dimensional shapes, prepositions, and art materials such as clay, tissue paper and paint. This book includes a discovery activity, an art connection, and mathematical vocabulary introduction"--Provided by publisher.

From the Publisher
"Look around you. What shapes do you see? Can you find circles, triangles, and squares? How about cones, cubes, and spheres? In this book you will join Mrs. Fox's class as they learn about shapes, sizes, and colors on a local playground. After your adventure, follow the class back to school to create beautiful art projects using the shapes you found! Concepts include flat and threedimensional shapes, and an interactive art connection. Have fun searching for shapes everywhere!"

School Library Journal (April 1, 2013)
K-Gr 2-This subset is a busy mix of language arts and math. The texts have short sentences, and most of the titles engage readers with a story. Each book begins with "iMath Ideas," which introduces a concept, poses a math problem, and provides strategies for getting the answer, encouraging students to evaluate which method is strongest. Every volume ends by reiterating the same "iMath Ideas." Additional sections include a "Discover Activity" and an informational section that connects the math discussion to science, history, or art. Each book ends with a "What Comes Next" page that gives ideas for expanding on the concepts presented and an "Additional Notes" section that provides answers to the various problems. Photos, charts, illustrations, and diagrams decorate the pages. At times, there is so much going on that the math might become lost for this young audience. For example, it seems almost random that "ligers" and "tigons" are discussed in Picnic Fun. Do not expect intense computational practice. This comprehensive set of CCSS resources may work well with reluctant math students. (c) Copyright 2013. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
