The 'If you were a...' Book Series for Math, Grammar and Vocabulary

If you were an Adjective -book

I ordered these books online for my students (the ones for parts of speech and vocabulary) 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!


These are the other books from the series. I really love them (and my students can't put 'em down!).
If you were a noun   If you were a verb
If you were a noun (with a Space theme)               If you were a verb (with a frog theme)

If you were a pronoun   If you were an adverb
If you were a pronoun (with an ocean theme)            If you were an Adverb (with an 'at the park' theme)

If you were a preposition   
If you were a preposition (with an animal theme)    If you were a conjunction (with an animal theme)

I had to buy these vocabulary ones...

If you were a synonym   If you were an antonym
If you were a Synonym                                          If you were an Antonym
If you were a prefix   If you were a suffix
If you were a Prefix (word fun)                         If you were a Suffix (word fun)

I saved the best for last! These books below will help with mathematics because each book is filled with real-word examples for meaningful learning of the operation symbols, odd and even numbers, geometry and time.
If you were a Minus Sign                                        If you were a Plus Sign

If you were a Times Sign                                      If you were a Divided-By Sign

If you were an Even Number                                       If you were an Odd Number

If you were a Minute                                                    If you were a Set

Examples of Quadrilaterals - in our everyday lives   Examples of Fractions - in our everyday lives
If you were a Quadrilateral                               If you were a Fraction

Examples of Polygons - in our everyday lives

About Me

My photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
