Once upon a time in 1977...Rachelle Cracchiolo started Teacher Created Materials with a friend and fellow teacher. Both were eager to share their ideas and passion for education with other classroom leaders. What began as a hobby, selling lesson plans to local stores, became a part-time job after a full day of teaching, and eventually blossomed into a nonstop opportunity to develop and grow Teacher Created Materials as a full-service company, and a welcome and familiar name in every classroom. The story continued in 2004 with the launch of Shell Education and the introduction of professional resources and classroom application books designed to support Teacher Created Materials curriculum resources. Today, Teacher Created Materials is one of the most recognized names in educational publishing around the world...and the story continues educationally ever after.

I have a lot of students in my classes this year who like to draw, so I thought that I would purchase this book to give me some new ideas about how to integrate art into my math lessons. Little did I know how many other great ideas I would find to integrate into my classes beside just the visual arts. This book is rich with ideas for teaching math at all levels through poetry, movement, music, drama and storytelling as well. My students and I have had a blast with all different kinds of activities, including using chants to learn about fractions and writing poetry to tell what we know about math vocabulary. Every time I try an activity from the book my students are asking for another one. The drama teacher got wind of what I was doing in my classroom and now she wants to try some of the ideas, too! I would definitely say that my teaching has been enhanced from reading this book and incorporating the ideas that I found in it. You'll be happy you bought it!
