Math Out Loud: Math and the Oral Tradition

7/16/2014 5:00:00 PM
If you are not familiar with Carol Hurst, her books, and her ways of integrating all sorts of content with literature, this will be a good introduction for you. In this article she offers examples of many songs, poems, and folk tales that use numbers, and gives lots of ideas on how to use the songs in math instruction. How many family members did the Farmer in the Dell have in his family? Her ideas for combining different folk tales to make up addition, subtraction, division, and multiplication problems will keep you searching for new ways to entertain your students while they are learning basic math.
