Crayons aren't just for coloring anymore!

This colorful rhyme teaches counting by twos–two different ways. First, use the even numbers to count up to 24. Then start over with the odd numbers. Along the way you'll learn unusual colors, like iguana and fiddlehead. Do any of them sound familiar? They should! They come from the pages of Jerry Pallotta's alphabet books.

This is a fantastic book to help teach counting in twos. The book counts up to two dozen by counting first in the even pairs and then in odd pairs. The use of crayons in the pictures to demonstrate the numbers, can easily be translated into a bodily-kinesthetic activity where students use real crayons to interact with the text. Plus, the pages rhyme creating an easy to remember saying that helps count by twos.

This is an adorable book for teaching counting to primary grades. Pam Munoz uses rhyming text to explain counting which makes the story fun to listen to as well as read aloud! The story also teaches even and odd numbers by illustrating even numbers of crayons first then odd numbers. An art teacher could also use this story to teach different colors and hues. The illustrations in the story are fun. When teaching even numbers, each page looks like a wooden desk with paper and crayons on top. When...more

The book The Crayon Counting Board Book by Pam Munoz Ryan introduces students to the concept of counting by twos. The book can be used as a good resource for lessons on counting and even or odd numbers. the book can also be used to introduce students to different colors. The book can also be used for lessons on rhyming. This book can be used in Pre-K to 3 grade classrooms.
A colorful book that uses illustrations of crayons to count by twos; beginning with all even numbers from zero to 24. The second half counts all of the odd numbers. It is simple and to the point. I would use this as a read aloud to introduce even and odd or just the first half of the book for the two times tables. (K-2)
This is a great book to teach counting by twos in both even and odd numbers. It presented the opportunity for us to talk about what an even and odd number is as well. Great book for a child who has counting down and needs a challenge. Nice rhyming too.
This would be a neat book to introduce counting by pairs to students. Students would enjoy the interactive pictures. This could possibly be turned into a smartboard lesson.

This book would be good for kindergarten. It uses crayons to teach even and odd numbers. It adds two crayons at a time, sometimes by color, to introduce the next number.

In this book, we get practice at counting by two's in two different ways. First we count by the even numbers, then we count the odd numbers.
I like this because it incorpartes the colors with numbers.
