Animated Big Books
Use a language approach to develop conceptual understanding of mathematics with narrated big books featuring embedded guiding questions
Research tells us that young students need an understanding of mathematical concepts that involves more than just the symbolic notation used to record them. At ORIGO we believe instruction should provide stages of language development (shown on the right) to ensure a deep understanding of mathematical concepts.
Children begin by using their own natural language to describe mathematical concepts. As we share and act out the stories in the Big Books, we add to their language and mental picture of the concept. Then we add more mathematical and, finally, symbolic language to build a deeper and more comprehensive understanding of the concept. Because language is the tool that learners use to connect new ideas to existing ideas, ORIGO Animated Big Books provides extensive opportunities with engaging visuals, rich questions, and catchy tunes.
