I ordered the ‘If you were a…’ Book Series for my students (Math and ELA Picture Books) and during that process, I realized that there were also books math in the same series too… The insides of the books are just as colorful as the covers and they are full of real-world examples of the topic, example, nouns, verb, adjectives etc. Each book also starts off with the basic examples, then move on to the complex ones (for older students). For instance, the adjective book has types of adjectives, degrees of adjectives, and other facts about adjectives.
See the picture below that I shot from the adjective book? (I hope the author doesn’t mind.) They are so vivid! All of the book titles start with ‘If You Were a (topic)’. As an Amazon affiliate, I may earn a commision for purchases using my links. These books are the best Math and ELA Picture Books.
These are the other books from the series. I really love them (and my students can’t put them down!).
