Sir Cumference and the Great Knight of Angleland (Math Mentor Text)
Happy Sunday! It's time for football! Glen and I are looking forward to being able to relax after church and watch a sport we both enjoy. But before we do any of that I need to link up with the two lovely ladies at Collaboration Cuties for their linky.
For those of you who aren't familiar with this book, the main character Radius is training to become a knight. In order to receive his knighthood he must go on a quest. Along the way he sees the Mountains of Obtuse and the little town with steep roofs that are "cute." He also needs to take "Knightly Right Turns" to help him in his adventure. The only thing he has to help him on his journey is an only family medallion.
The students enjoy the adventure in this book. Some of them understand the puns as we read, others need a little help along the way! After we read the book we normally make a four flap foldable to remember what the angles names are and what they mean. The kids enjoy the book and it gives us a reference point to go back to when they are first trying to learn and use the vocabulary.
