Mathematizing a read-aloud provides students with opportunities to learn mathematical concepts in meaningful contexts. Using literature can also help students to connect concepts with their experiences. Although I have categorized the books below, many can be used for multiple concepts so just because a title is recorded under "Counting" doesn't mean it cannot also be used for "Addition" - you just need to think creatively and children love to revisit their favourite books throughout the year!

Here is a link to an excellent article written on the benefits provided from "Mathematizing A Read-Aloud" written by Alison Hintz and Antony Smith.
