"The Greedy Triangle" is a great book for all students. For students in the early elementary grades, you could use this book simply as a tool for helping to recognize shapes. Students could pick out shapes and tell you what they are as you read the book. For older students, they could read the story idependently, noting all the different kinds of places you find shapes. For example, a student might note that a stop sign is in the shape of an octagon, or that a traffic cone is shaped like a triangle. This book is great for having students make connections between shapes they see in the book and shapes they see in everyday life.
