This week I chose a book that is not your typical math mentored text. This book is a chapter book that I read to my students while we are working on learning fractions. The book is about a boy who does not do well with fractions. He has a huge fraction test coming up and his mom gets a tutor for him. Wilson thinks that having a tutor is the worst thing that can happen. He keeps it a secret for as long as possible. Most of the book talks about fractions, but the students in the book are working on a science fair project. The book goes through the scientific method also. My kids love to listen to me read during math. I usually start the class off my reading a chapter. They have been encouraged that fractions really aren't that bad and it is ok to have a tutor! The author also has a book 7 x 9=Trouble!, which is fun when teaching multiplication facts!
