What I'm reading
Fractions In Disguise is a math mystery where George Cornelius Factor needs to find a stolen 5/9 fraction. This would be a terrific book to use for introducing how to reduce fractions.
Handle With Care features a butterfly farm in Costa Rica. Readers find out that farms don't necessarily have to produce food. When I teach our unit on life cycles, I'll be using this book. Great back matter too!
