by Virginia L. KrollI was observing a classroom one day and the teacher was using this book to supplement the section on division in math for her elementary students. Since then I have also used this book to help make math connection for some of my younger students.
Through a game of tug-of-war Mouse and her friends have to decide how to make both sides equal with the same number of animals. After multiple attempts are made, they finally arrive at a solution that makes both sides equal with the same number of animals. The book is predictable in a number of ways but the story still has enough plot to keep younger children reading or listening. My favorite part is at the end of the book where there are four definitions of equal from the viewpoints of math, art, the law, and team sports.
I've learned that making literature connections in other content areas is beneficial in helping students make connections. Super cute book!
