Have you ever heard the term living books? Charlotte Mason, a British educator who lived at the turn of the twentieth century, coined the phrase. One of the things that she believed was that children learn best by reading good literature. Thus, the term, “living books”.
I have a math series of living books written by Stuart J. Murphy called MathStart that is for preschool through middle school, which you can use to introduce or reinforce mathematical concepts through a story. I recommend that you read these books together to discuss the topic if it is a new concept and then provide the opportunity for your child to read them independently to review and reinforce what you discussed.
There are 63 titles in the series, and while I am not going to list every title, I will give you an idea of what topics are covered and provide you with a link of all the titles in this great series at the bottom of the post.
