This book's 50-plus lessons-each based on a different picture book or story-will help classroom teachers build a foundation for teaching math, science, and social studies concepts to their students. Each lesson uses children's literature to make challenging, abstract concepts relevant to children's lives, inviting them to learn these concepts while responding to a story's illustrations, theme, characters, and plot. The lessons also demonstrate how teachers can use children's literature to meet national standards in math, science, and social studies. Chapters 1 through 5 set the stage for using picture books, discussing the effective, imaginative integration of literature into the classroom. Teachers will learn to create an environment that ensures that when children and books come together, the experience is enjoyable and thought provoking. Chapters 6 through 9 provide individual lessons, by grade level, with detailed activities based on specific books.

Over 200,000 copies sold! Now with a newly refreshed design, this classic mathematical folktale tells the story of a clever farmer who outwits the Emperor of China and becomes the wealthiest man in the world—all starting with one grain of rice. When a humble farmer named Pong Lo asks for the hand of the Emperor’s beautiful daughter, the Emperor is enraged. Whoever heard of a peasant marrying a princess? But Pong Lo is wiser than the Emperor knows. And when he concocts a potion that saves the Princess’s life, the Emperor gladly offers him any reward he chooses—except the Princess. Pong Lo makes a surprising request. He asks for a single grain of rice, doubled every day for one hundred days. The baffled Emperor obliges—only to discover that if you’re as clever as Pong Lo, you can turn a single grain of rice into all the wealth and happiness in the world! Praise for A Grain of Rice: “Gracefully illustrated. . . . This original story set in fifteenth-century China will captivate readers and perhaps teach them a little about mathematics.” —Booklist “Clever and quietly told in simple, yet evocative language.” —Kirkus Reviews “Any young reader (with calculator handy) will enjoy the tale.” —Scientific American “[A] book that is wise and humorous, and one to be perused and savored.” —School Library Journal

Grace McDaniel ist die Polizeichefin des Örtchens Lake Bluff, Georgia. Als nach einem merkwürdigen Gewittersturm auffällig viele ältere Menschen sterben, nimmt Grace die Ermittlungen auf.

Wanda, ein kleines polnisches Mädchen, trägt in der Schule jeden Tag dasselbe fadenscheinige blaue Kleid, obwohl sie sagt, dass sie zu Hause in ihrem Schrank hundert wunderschöne Kleider hat. Die anderen Kinder in ihrer Klasse glauben ihr das natürlich nicht, und als Peggy anfängt, Wanda deswegen tagtäglich zu hänseln, machen alle mit. Auch Peggys beste Freundin Maddie ist mit dabei, aber im Geheimen fragt sie sich, ob sie den Mut aufbringen wird, sich gegen ihre Klasse zu stellen und Wanda zu verteidigen. Bis Wanda plötzlich eines Tages nicht mehr in die Schule kommt und es sich aufklärt, was es mit den hundert Kleidern auf sich hat, ist es schon fast zu spät. Doch Maddie und Peggy lernen daraus, wie wichtig Verständnis und Mitgefühl im Leben sind ... Eleanor Estes zu Herzen gehende Geschichte, ausgezeichnet mit dem wichtigsten Kinderbuchpreis Amerikas und verpflichtende Schullektüre, berührt seit über 70 Jahren Leser alle Altersstufen mit ihrer zeitlosen Botschaft von Mitgefühl und Verstehen.

Blitz-Mathematik mit dem vedischen System macht das Lernen mathematischer Grundlagen lohnenswerter. Der durchschnittliche Schüler wird in der Lage sein, Aufgaben wie 46X44, 95X95 und 116X114 im Kopf auszurechnen - oft noch schneller als Mithilfe eines Taschenrechners! Schüler werden mit Leichtigkeit das Berechnen von Quadraten, Würfeln, Prozentsätzen, Brüchen und Gleichungen verstehen. Papier und Bleistift werden zwar vor wie nach für die meisten Aufgaben benötigt, aber die Geschwindigkeit und Genauigkeit der Kalkulationen werden sich erheblich verbessern. Dies motiviert den Schüler wiederum, mehr zu Lernen. Dieses Buch bietet intelligente Strategien, um die Grundrechenarten und Algebra zu meistern. Diese beiden Bereiche sind die Grundbausteine der Mathematik. Wenn Schüler erst einmal diese Aspekte beherrschen, werden Sie sich auch in anderen Bereichen der Mathematik sicherer fühlen.

New York Times bestselling author of Gotcha Capitalism and MSNBC.com "Red Tape Chronicles" columnist Bob Sullivan strikes again to help you evade the financial traps big businesses set for unwary consumers—and shows you how to get the best possible deals every single time. Today's marketplace is full of hidden fees, fine print, and other booby traps designed to trip you up and take your money. You may be losing big even when you think you're getting a steal! But with Sullivan's keen guidance and sensible advice, you can save money and regain control of your financial life. Clearly and concisely, Sullivan reveals • why American consumers make such easy targets for corporate America (you'll be stunned, for example, at how poor our math skills are) • how Wall Street will skim off one third of your retirement money (avoid this trap with Sullivan's new "Pitfall-Proof Pyramid") • the myths behind credit-card reward programs and "the 21st-Century Bank Account" • the real numbers to focus on when buying a new car • why you should spend more time shopping for your mortgage than your home • the key questions you must ask before buying life insurance • the secrets to saving for college and paying off student loans the right way • the best deals on cell phones and pay-TV service With Sullivan's empowering message, financial savvy, and knowledge of consumers' wants and needs, you can outsmart the system, keep your hard-earned cash, and finally stop getting ripped off. And you'll become part of a growing grass-roots movement to rein in the abuses of corporate America before consumers get hurt by another boom-and-bust cycle. From the Trade Paperback edition.
