Description

“Kids, young and old, fall in love with math when they see how real-life and effortless it becomes thanks to these books.” —Kimberly D. Mueller, Ed.D., First Grade Teacher, Ashbrook School, Lumberton NJ

Let's Fly a Kite is perfect for teaching symmetry to first, second, and third graders. When Bob and Hannah split something, the two pieces had better be symmetrical—exactly the same. But to fly their kite, they'll have to learn something new—cooperation!

Kids will love the story and the illustrations by Brian Floca. Parents and educators will love how the story and pictures make understanding the math concepts a breeze—as well as the concrete examples of how math works. The book contains activities for adults to do with kids to extend math into their own lives.Math skills are life skills, and the MathStart series supports success!
