This product is the first in a larger series of books. I originally came up with this idea as a means to send a resource home for students to work on at the end of a unit to review and show me what they really know. However after some time I started using them in different ways in my classroom. I have used them in whole group, guided groups, and also had students work on them in centers. They are diverse and can work in many ways.
These books have the students define the topic they are learning about. It also gives them space to work on Fun Facts about that topic that may help them solve and understand it better, There is a page for word problems to work on with the specific topic at hand. There is a page where students can create their own problems. Finally there is a reflection page at the end to help teachers see what students really know and understand.
