"I got a crazy idea the other day when I took my daughter to the library.  Get ready for it… Math Book Monday! Out of my four daily preps, two of them will be math classes: 5th grade Advanced Math and 6th grade Advanced Math.  I’m really a language arts teacher at heart.  (This is my first year in 19 years of teaching that I won’t have a language arts class.) So, I thought I would bring language arts into math class.  I already mentioned that I want to bring writing to math class via Kid Blog.  Now, I want to bring reading into it too. Have you ever read Math Curse by Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith?  This may be the absolutely best math book out there.”
