Today I am linking up with my girls Amanda and Stacia over at Collaboration Cuties! I have discovered the text, Counting On Frank by Rod Clement. I just ordered this book to use as a review and as a way to introduce measurement to my class.
First, the illustrations are amazing and I know my kids will love them too! The story is of a boy, he does not have a name in the story, and his dog Frank. The boy uses Frank to help solve problems and provide the reader with random facts.
The author builds upon the problems in the text, for example for "Roomful of Franks" you will need the answer to question on to solve problem number two. Problem two reads, "If eight of these Franks went out for a walk, how many would that leave in the house?".
This book is 33 pages long and I can't wait to use it with my kids. I did notice on Amazon that it is not available in "New" condition so I am assuming it is no longer being printed.
Measurement Review Task Cards. I created 20 task cards that review metric and customary units of measurement. ALL of the questions are word problems, ten are multiple choice and the other ten are multi-step/critical thinking tasks. I have made them April's $1.00 DEAL!
If you haven't grabbed this GREAT deal by Educents you should! One of my favorite lessons/products from this bundle is Cooking With Science by Teaching with a Touch of Twang. It's a FABULOUS lesson for Physical and Chemical changes with a real world connection!
I hope you stop by for tomorrow's Mathematical Linky post! I am sharing how we used decimals on a number line.
