Product Description:

Amelia Bedelia goes to work housekeeping for the Rogers. Mrs. Rogers has left a list of things for her to do. The first item on the list reads: Change the towels in the bathroom. Amelia Bedelia finds the towels, but they are so nice it seems like a shame to change them. But that's what the list says, so Amelia Bedelia finds some scissors and changes those towels. You can only imagine what she does to draw the curtains, dust the furniture, and dress the chicken!

Publisher Description:

Learn to read with the classic Amelia Bedelia! Ever since Amelia Bedelia made her debut in 1963, young readers have been laughing out loud at the antics of this literal-minded but charming housekeeper.

From dressing the chicken to drawing the drapes, Amelia Bedelia does exactly what Mr. and Mrs. Rogers tell her to do. If things get a bit mixed up, well, that's okay. When Amelia Bedelia is involved, everything always turns out perfectly in the end!

This Level 2 I Can Read is perfect for kids who read on their own but still need a little help. Whether shared at home or in a classroom, the engaging stories, longer sentences, and language play of Level Two books are proven to help kids take their next steps toward reading success.

"No child can resist Amelia [Bedelia] and her literal trips through the minefield of the English language—and no adult can fail to notice that she's usually right when she's wrong."—The New York Times Book Review

Category Description for Let's Read Math! Funbooks:

Oh how I wish these books had been available when my children were younger! Every summer we would join our local library reading program, and although most of the time allowed my children to select their own reading materials, I often would slip in an educational book just to keep their minds focused. Frequently, these books would be math-oriented since I really wanted to keep their math skills sharp. Using children's books to teach math skills has always been fun for my family, and these books would have served to bring more fun to our math practice.

The vision of the author of this series was simply to allow books to lead the way from Storyland to Mathland, allowing our children to learn at a young age that math can and should be fun! With this vision, she created each Funbook to correspond to sixteen children's books. These books are easily found in libraries, however, they may also be purchased inexpensively (see resource list for each book below).

Each Funbook contains black and white activity pages, brightly colored cardstock manipulatives, and an extended reading list. Funbook A contains teacher's notes for each of the children's book read, activity page answers, and stickers to complete some of the activities. A few activities will also require other items that are easily found around your home such as coins and dice. Teacher Guides are available separately for Funbook 1 and 2. The Teacher Guides provide ideas to use the Let's Read Math Funbooks in a variety of settings, a summary of each book to be read, instructions for each student page, reduced student pages with answers, and a suggested book list using the same math themes as found in the primary sixteen books. Although it is possible to use these Funbooks without the Teacher Guides, the additional support materials found in them are worth the investment to organize and instruct you on using the Funbooks most effectively.

So, what math topics are covered? Each book covers a large variety of math themes and incorporates practical math (money, seasons, time), geometry, classifying, and algebraic formulas. According to the author, Funbook 1 and Funbook 2 are non-sequential and can be completed in either order. This series is loosely linked to state standards but would not independently meet state standards. Please note: Funbook A copyright grants permission for copies to be made for students in a classroom or out of a school setting. The rest of the series is not reproducible. Pb. ~ Deanne
