Elmo’s Math Adventure
Show your child that math is all around him with this storybook.
Read the storybook together and point out how much the Sesame friends love math. Abby exclaims, “Math is fun!,” Bert says, “Math is a blast!,” and Elmo and Grover continue to say that they’re on a “math adventure!”
Use this kind of positive language in everyday conversation with kids. Math can have a reputation for being intimidating, but simple language choices can make a real difference. For example, using the pronoun “we” to frame a math question (“How can we find out how many carrot sticks we have all together?”) lets kids know that it’s a team learning experience.
