The City Trail: A Skip-Counting Tale
by Dr. Daniele Kass, Ed.D.
AuthorHouse Publishing, 2010
"On a trip into the big city,
Were mom, dad, brother, and me.
With lots of different sights to see,
We counted things in groups of three."
A journey into a big city proves that skip-counting can be great fun! This adventurous rhyming tale introduces children to the foundational mathematics concept of skip-counting number sets. A family's exploration of sights within a big city proves that mathematics is everywhere! Each stop along the journey identifies a common characteristic of a city setting, supporting numeration, number patterns, and multiplication concepts. Literacy and mathematics connections strengthen children's language and mathematical skills with reinforcement in rhyming word and language patterns, conceptual mathematics skills, and vocabulary development.
