Picture Book Linky Party #2: Math Books

I LOVE using picture books in my classroom, especially when I can use a book for a topic in math, science, or social studies... so I am very excited to see all of the books that are mentioned in this linky party!!
1. My first math book features one of my FAVORITE characters: Pete the Cat!! Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons is a great way to introduce subtraction.
2. The Doorbell Rang is an old favorite that is a great way to introduce the idea of division, while also talking about sharing :)
3. I LOVE Mouse Count. This is a great book to practice counting and the kiddos always enjoying acting this one out!!
4. Ten Black Dots is a great counting book; it is also a great book to use as a springboard to an art/writing project where you give each child 10 black dots to make their own picture.
5. One more book with a fun art connection: The Shape of Things!! This is a great way to review shapes... then give your students a variety of shapes in lots of colors and see what they can make!! This is always a class favorite!!
These are just a few of my favorite math books.... I can't wait to read everyone's posts in the linky party and their comments.
