Classroom Freebies

Math Can Be Literacy Too

Years ago I was inspired by a teacher who loved to incorporate literacy into all of her teaching subjects.  She inspired me to do the same.  I learned about the Sir Cumference series by Cindy Neuschwander.  If you've never read them, check one out of the library!  There are several, and each one tells a cute story about the knight Sir Cumference and his family (his wife is lady Di of Ameter).  The stories truly help students understand geometric concepts.  I love sharing all of her stories with my class.  Each year, they're always a little confused when I begin a math lesson with a read aloud.  They always get a kick out of it though.  Here is a freebie I wrote to go with the story "Sir Cumference and the First Round Table".  Enjoy!
