Double the Ducks (MathStart 1) Reviews
I am disappointed that I made this purchase because my main goal was to teach the math skill, not just to have a cute book for our bookshelf. There are some good and bad things about the book.
I bought this item to teach the concept of doubles to first grade students mainly because I like the way that math concepts are introduced in Stuart J Murphy books. However, I was not at all impressed with this book. The text does not clearly indicate doubles, and the story is a bit senseless. I decided not to use it for teaching purposes at all. I have many Stuart J Murphy books and would recommend many of them for instruction or for introducing a new topic depending upon the grade level knowledge of the student or students, but I cannot recommend this one AT ALL.
My kids are "too big" for picture books -- but we keep these Stuart Murphy books around anyway. They set a great foundation for math concepts, and they are fun to read. Double the ducks is one of my favorites -- it is rhythmic and has adorable illustrations. Great for visual learning, auditory learning, and it really teaches the math concept of doubling. Excellent.
Great book for teaching math concepts.
This book is great. I have borrowed it before, and now am glad to have my own copy. I wish I could afford to purchase Murphy's entire works, but I have to be content with piece by piece. Thank you Amazon for your quick shipping and ease of ordering.
This is the first book by Stuart Murphy that I have read to my granddaughter. She loves the counting on every page.
I received the book quickly and in great shape. I ordered several books for my math curriculum at great prices. I'm excited to get started reading them to my class.
