If You Were a Triangle (Math Fun) Reviews
My assistant principal handed me a list of books she wanted purchased after attending a conference. This was one of several and it is helping to update our non-fiction 500s section of our media center. Should correlate well with Common Core.
My 3 year old son was bored with learning shapes because he knew them all... so I bought this book to give him something different. He was glued to the book and loved that there were different types of triangles. The book shows how triangles have 3 angles, 3 corners, and 3 sides. It also covers 3 types: isosceles, right, and equilateral triangles. It even showed how two triangles put together makes another shape like a rectangle. Very impressed at the content given that far too often this material is not even discussed with students until geometry in high school. Personally, kids don't really need to wait that long to learn and in fact they learn better when they are young. Only issue is that ice cream cones are 3D cones not 2D triangles, but I think that could be worked out in discussion. Overall, a great little book for a math center on triangles.
