Math can seem so mechanical and get dry pretty fast, but it doesn’t have to be that way.  There is so much beauty in math, if we would only take the time to notice.  Here are some great read alouds that can accompany your math lessons or even morning time! Next to each title, I have written the concepts they aim to reinforce.
