It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

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!

Cool non-education articles that I read

If you like to make ice cream (and I do), check out this article in the NY Times by Melissa Clark. One secret: Use egg yolks.


  1. I think Handle with Care is a title I would love for my nonfiction read aloud collection - I have seen some other positive reviews. Happy reading!

  2. I really want to read Handle with Care. Loree Griffin Burns is a superb nonfiction writer.

  3. Handle With Care looks just right for a number of teachers at my school. Thanks for sharing it.

  4. Love the look of Fractions in Disguise - will have to find that one in our libraries too. Thanks, Jeff!
