Looking for ways to build math skills easily? Use picture books to get kids excited about math! Here are some favorite math pictures books kids will love.
As a kid, math was my weakest subject. I had trouble understanding mathematical concepts and the word problems made me want to pull out my hair. My own numerical frustrations is the reason I used picture books when I taught math. The books were great for introducing new topics and helped the students link the math concepts with everyday situations to make those connections within their own lives every day.
