Book-A-Day Giveaway 2022 on Twitter

December 12 – 17, 2022

For five consecutive days beginning on December 12, 2022, The Robertson Program will give away two story books that inspire mathematical learning. The first book will be given to a Twitter follower who “Quote Tweets” the daily giveaway post, tags a friend and shares a storybook that can be used to develop math skills. The second book will be given to the tagged Twitter user.

On Friday December 17, 2022, an additional two books will be given to two randomly drawn subscribers of the Robertson Program eNewsletter. Subscribe to the Robertson eNewsletter here for a chance to win!

Deliberately selecting culturally diverse and relevant literature ensures all students have an opportunity see themselves reflected in class material. Plus, 7 self-reflective questions for educators to consider when selecting storybooks to support mathematical learning.

Using children’s literature to teach math increases achievement, vocabulary and overall interest throughout the elementary years. It deepens conceptual understanding, triggers extended talk about math, enhances numeracy and reasoning, reduces math anxiety and builds a positive attitude toward mathematics.
