I am a fan of Eileen Spinelli and I really like this book. The class attempts to earn their trip through not only giving their own money, but also through various work projects. However, a number of blunders with multiple breakable objects leads the class to wonder if they have what it takes. A bonus is that with the various earning and subtraction to account for repairs to various broken things, there are plenty of opportunities for math lessons to come out of this title.
This book tells a good story, while also incorporating math. This class is collecting money for a field trip. The make money, and then have many expenses. Therefore, you could use this book in a lesson on addition and subtraction. You could work out the math along with the book.
