Spotlight Friday - looking at math! 10.13.17

Time to get ready for the weekend!
Kick up your feet and find a good place to read.
Sharing #booklove for your classroom or library.
Spotlighting a book or two because these books deserve the spotlight!

It seems like no matter what you're teaching in math, there is a book to use for that!  Some new(er) books you may want to add to your curriculum:

Twinderella, a Fractioned Fairy Tale by Corey Rosen Schwartz

A great book to use when you're introducing fractions!  Using a familiar story in a fractured way (see what I did there???) kids will love this new take that can be used over different areas of curriculum.

An interesting tale of friendship, a fun discussion of fitting a round peg into a square hole... or a square into a triangle door....  

How Many Guinea Pigs Can Fit on a Plane?: Answers to Your Most Clever Math Questions
How Many Guinea Pigs Can Fit on a Plane?

This book is a must for math classrooms!  Whether you're using the problems for fun, for whole group, for challenge, for creative thinking.... or many other reasons... this is a fantastic collection of crazy and silly math questions.
