    This is not a very exciting book The illustrations by Lois Ehlert are nice, but the story is kind of meh The book does introduce matching, and I think the thing the two year olds I read this to liked best may have been looking at all the socks on the last page.

    Simple rhyming text as a sock looks for its mate Not quite a book for patterns however.

    A Pair of Socks is a very simple picture book that was written with the intention of teaching very young children to identify similarities and differences between patterns This book would be useful in a kindergarten to first grade classroom but I would be hesitant to use it in older classrooms The text and the concept of matching socks is very simple and relates to something within the child s world and so it really helps to bring math to life for very young children However, this book was no A Pair of Socks is a very simple picture book that was written with the intention of teaching very young children to identify similarities and differences between patterns This book would be useful in a kindergarten to first grade classroom but I would be hesitant to use it in older classrooms The text and the concept of matching socks is very simple and relates to something within the child s world and so it really helps to bring math to life for very young children However, this book was not written with the intention of writing great children s literature The purpose of this book is very pointed and even provides activities that can be done with children in order to further reinforce the topic taught in the book I would use this book in my classroom and I would actually like to find evenbooks from this publisher that I could use to introduce math concepts

    Murphy introduces young children to the concept of patterns through a lone sock s search for its mate The boldly colored artwork helps children clearly see various stripes, dots, and designs There is a slight story in the rhyming text, but as with most concept books, fine literature isn t the point Readers can practice their newly learned skill with a matching exercise The book ends with suggested activities, such as clapping and stomping in different patterns, parents can try with children Murphy introduces young children to the concept of patterns through a lone sock s search for its mate The boldly colored artwork helps children clearly see various stripes, dots, and designs There is a slight story in the rhyming text, but as with most concept books, fine literature isn t the point Readers can practice their newly learned skill with a matching exercise The book ends with suggested activities, such as clapping and stomping in different patterns, parents can try with children to extend the lesson For babies and toddlers

    Same or different This book will help students look at groups of objects and shapes to see if they are the same or are they different I would have objects on two sides of the room, so will be similar and others will be copies of each other I would have my students small group activity try to match up the correct pairs as fast as they could and then talk about how are these objects the same I would also have the students talkl about why the similars are not quite right.

    Cute story I bought this as part of a pack of books by Stuart Murphy that teach math concepts They re all good, and have teaching lessons in the back that I was able to adapt to the summer reading program on numerous occasions Shhh Don t tell them they re learning at the library, it s only fun and games, OK

    Story about making pairs It s a very simple level one book but shows how to match up a pair Throughout the story one sock is looking for it s pair by eliminating all the other socks that come up At the end there is a page of all the socks for students to match up together based on the designs and coloring of the socks.

    This is a cute story about matching socks It also rhymes It has very pretty and bright pictures and the text is easy enough for even early readers to work with In the end of the book, the sock finds his match in the dog bed I particularly liked this because my dogs used to steal my socks too The last page of the book also has all of the socks together for the students to match.
