Math Curse By: Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith

Math Curse - Jon Scieszka, Lane Smith

This book would be great for higher level grades. Teaching using a thematic unit, integrating math and literature. After making predictions and reading book as class, students could observe their own environment and make their own word problems and then solve them. Students would be building skills in predicting, writing, creativity, problem solving, and word problems.
