In this podcast, Farah Salman introduces listeners to the book So Many Circles, So Many Squares by Tana Hoban.
I like this book because it is very unique with all sorts of creative pictures. I think it can be used in many ways in class.
- Just for counting the teapots, plates, bikes, and pipes.
- To see the different shapes of things, like circles in wheels and fruits or squares in a net or fabric design.
- To find out greater and more, like are there more squares on a waffle or on a table cover.
