It starts with a team that is about to play in the playoffs fr baseball. They are excited but worried because their uniform shirts are so dirty and holey. In order to raise the money themselves, they decided to host a car wash that will allow them to raise the money needed. The book goes into money detail, literally breaking apart each coin or bill given to pay for the car wash as well as the change back due to the customers. The tracking of the money through the entire process is done exceptionally well. Charts are used to keep track of the money collected. At the end of the book, it provides a section titled For Adults and Kids. Here it breaks certain parts of the story, to incorporate children's interaction to the book by asking the children to count the money themselves, and then provide them with the correct amount located on the chart board.

She wrote it because she realized that geometry wasn't only in math but around the world.

The story begins with a family of pigs who go to play golf because it is the father's favorite thing to do. The cover covers the rules of golf with a layout of the course and the rules written out. The father is the pro within the family and he seems to be off track a bit. The mother continues to get the holes in one. If all holes are completed with a hole in one, they win a pizza party. This is a very cute book about persistence intertwined with math concepts.

This book includes a table of contents. This table could be used to reinforce the usage for the table of contents.

A variety of poems are spoken about from 'haiku' to fables. Each poem talks about an animal. Animals included are tigers, elephants, birds, lizards, squirrels, sloths, pigs, owls, turkeys, cats, rodents, fish, alligators, etc...

I love that at the bottom of the poems are vocabulary words that the intended students of 3-5 graders may not know. This allows the student to access the information on a word they may not know immediately but providing this section within the page.

This book could be used to integrate writing with science. Maybe for a animal unit.

This is an amazing book that incorporates both factual information on pandas at the San Diego Zoo as well as subtraction concepts. If you only would like to read the story of the pandas, then you only read the right side of the book. If you would like to incorporate the math portion then you would read the left sides of the book. It explains the concept of subtraction as finding the difference between tow numbers. It talks about the change in weight from a panda at birth to a panda at 2 weeks old. They measure this using ounces, so the measurement aspect could also be incorporated. On another page it talks about the total number of bamboo species at the zoo minus the amount of bamboo species eaten by the pandas. To show this illustration rods and individual unifix cubes are used to help the reader understand how many species of bamboo are not eaten by pandas.

The illustrations in this book are real pictures taken when Mei Sheng (the baby panda) was born at the San Diego zoo. It provides the reader with a sequence of events in a panda cycle from birth to adult.

This would be an ideal book for 3rd - 4th grade due to the wordy sections on the right side where it talks about the actual story of the panda at the San Diego Zoo. This book could be incorporated to speak about the life cycles of pandas and also could be used to explain what they do at the zoo and how they take care of the animals. (less)

The book begins with the definition of addition as combining two or more numbers to come up with their total. Addition problems deal with student activities at school, such as 6 yellow buses parked in a line. 3 pulled behind them and then there were 9. It provides the reader with an interpretation of the word problem to allow the reader to physically count 6 buses plus the other 3 buses parked behind them for a total count of buses parked to be 9. It reiterates throughout the book that in addition no amounts get smaller; instead the amount of items grows.
