A quick post about a mentored text

Hello everyone!  I hope everyone had a fantastic Mother's Day.  I enjoyed spending time with my mom on this beautiful day!  This is a really quick post because it is late and I need to get to bed!  Five o'clock comes very early!  Once again I am teaming up with the cute girls from Collaboration Cuties for their mentored text linky party!  This week's topic Math!

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!

Don't forget my 50 follower giveaway ends tonight.  Go HERE to enter!

Have a great week!
