Common Core practices encourage teachers to help students persevere, reason, model, to help solve problems. These Tour Books are Common Core aligned, with a strong emphasis on thinking, problem-solving, seeing patterns, and real-life applications. I created these Tour Books as a way for students to learn different math skills and concepts at their own pace and level without relying much on previous knowledge.
How can I use this product?
I teach multi-grade classes and my students are at different levels, so I can’t teach my whole class, or even small groups, so I designed these for a student to pick up and learn as if I was sitting next to them, as the Evil Math Wizard. Having said that, I know teachers who have used these in a whole class setting.

I guarantee your students will enjoy using these tour books, though they might have some difficulty stewing and thinking. And you might need to learn to be patient and give them a chance to think things through. But if they persevere they will feel really proud and have a strong foundation for further fraction learning.
