5.0 out of 5 stars If I'd Only Had This Book When I Started! February 7, 2006
Format:Paperback
If I had to teach Math to young kids on a desert island and could only take one book, this would be the one! John Van de Walle had previously written a college level textbook resource for teaching Math at the Elementary and Middle School levels. It was comprehensive, but way too dense to be teacher friendly.

Someone had a great idea to separate the text into grade level bands and make it more user friendly. Co-written with LouAnn Lovin, the authors introduce the Big Ideas you need to teach to, so that young kids can construct meaning and actually make sense of mathematics. They also pack plenty of activity ideas into the book to help you move your students toward becoming mathematically fluent. A thumbnail guide to the blackline masters used throughout the text is included in an appendix. The full size masters are available gratis online. Get this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Must-Have book June 17, 2006
Format:Paperback
I am so glad I bought this book. I have been teaching for over 10 years, but I always felt something was missing from my math lessons. This book fills in the gaps.

It explains how kids learn math and the connections that need to be made from one concept to the next. It also has assessments to help determine each student's level of understanding and how they are solving problems.

I can't wait to start trying these activities in the fall. A must-have book for all K-3 teachers!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent source November 7, 2006
By Evans
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I really like this book as a source for conceptual Math activities. I recommend purchasing only 1 either K-2, 3-5, depending on which you think you would use more. They overlap alot.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not great November 12, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
So I guess I will be the first to knock this book. I am not saying it isn't good because it is pretty awesome. It has some great theory and can help you get a really deep understanding of how kids come to understand math. The reason I say it is just okay is that to me it is more of a research book not a jump in and do this book which feels like the only thing I have time for at the moment. It has a limited number of activities that span all ranges of K-3 math so when I want to work on counting there is but 1 activity leaving me to create more reasons for counting.
I have heard he supplies a lot of blakcline masters on line, but honestly have not found the time to look at the moment.

I have found that if you are looking for a multitude of activities at your fingertips I would look into Kathy Richardson's series - Developing Number Concepts, Addition and Subtraction, Multiplication and Division. I feel that they have similar depth to this book, but are much more teacher friendly.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Book is Amazing March 8, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you're going back and forth about getting this book--- get it. You won't be disappointed. It has SO much useful information I could replace our whole math curriculum and use this instead. The beginning of the book tells you how to set up a problem-based classroom. When I first started learning how this type of constructivist approach, I always wished that someone would just spell it out for me. How do I do a good job creating a problem-based lesson? It all seemed so fuzzy! This book does that. He explains how to be successful at using 1 big problem as a catalyst to your math instruction that day or week.

The book is then broken up into "big idea" topics and tons of games, activities, and background knowledge are given about developing place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication....

Being the nerd I am, I have carried this book around my school, giddy with excitement as I showed other teachers in my building page after page. Can you tell I just love this book?!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Resource August 25, 2006
Format:Paperback
This book is an excellent resource for those teaching mathematics to students in the primary grades. The authors provide rationale for concepts taught, games to be played, and templates of materials needed. There is also a website to get additional resources from. My students have enjoyed the games and I have enjoyed using it.
