I love this book I read it during math today First, I read each page without showing the illustration Next, I had my students draw out what the text said about the cow on their white boards and answer the fraction question s Then, I had a student come to the Smartboard to show his her picture, the answer to the question s , and explain how he she got the answer s Finally, I showed the illustration in the book We had so much fun

The story is about a cow who wants to have fun during her day, so it participates in many different activities that show fractions as well The book is interactive The audience for this book would be a 3rd or 4th grade classroom The students would be math students I would use this book for a fraction lesson The book is not only a story but also an interactive story which asks the kids questions This would be a great group activity to do while learning fractions The appeal is the interactive parts [...]

My fourth grade twins, who are working with fractions right now, really loved this The math was a bit obvious for them, so it would probably be perfect for third graders as far as teaching the concept As it was, my twins felt very smart knowing all the answers, which is just fine too

This was a great book to read to my third graders at the beginning of our fractions unit.

5. author says:

Great way to help children understand basic fractions if they re a struggle.

6. author says:

I enjoyed reading this fun book about fractions I think this is a great book for younger children It s interactive as well as informational I liked all the illustrations as well as how the book showed different scenarios of a cow and then asked related fraction questions This book could be read aloud for a math unit on fractions This book would be for kids grades K 2 The teacher would read the book aloud and then stop when the book asks questions about fractions such as Which fraction of the cow [...]

What a great book to teach children fractions I have always struggled with fractions and so I think this would have been a great book for me to have read when I was a child and I may have understood fractions better or related to them better through the pictures I think that this is a kid friendly book so children can be comfortable with fractions and not be afraid of them as I was growing up I thought that this book was good because it gives the opportunity to practice with fractions and count [...]

Whole y Cow is a book about a cow who decides to act differently one day The cow gets painted blue, wears a patriotic swimsuit, eats ice cream, balances on a peg, takes a bath, plays the cello, gets a fish, dances, and catches butterflies Throughout all of these activities, there are questions about fractions asked about the activities that the cow does I personally really enjoyed this book The mathematical questions on every other page about fractions are perfect for students Although the book [...]

This book is about a cow who decides to act differently one day She does different activities and in every activity she ends up with a fraction some way or another This is a math book so it would be great to introduce fractions, but I would also use it in a literacy lesson This book includes several of rhyming words in it I would use this book to introduce rhyming words I would ask students to identify the rhyming words and to think of another word that rhymes I believe this book will keep stude [...]

This book introduces fractions using a cow in different scenarios The book introduces different scenarios with rhyming verses and represents different fractions throughout the story Using the words and the visual clues or pictures, students are asked to answer what fractions are being represented in each scenario the cow is in For example, a cow is painted half blue and the text asks how much of the cow is painted blue The story uses halves, thirds, fourths, eighths, and tenths throughout I woul [...]

This book is fabulous when introducing fractions to a classroom This book makes fractions fun, and the illustrations are bright and entertaining Students will be interested because the character, which is a silly cow, divides his body throughout the story to teach fractions This will keep the young students interested and allow them a fun way to learn new math skills

13. author says:

This book was great It covered defining what a whole is, and what fractions are and how they work, all in a nice little story about a cow Definitely would be a great one for young children learning about their numbers and parts of a whole, and would give them plenty of opportunities to count and understand fractions.

14. author says:

This book was about learning fractions If this book were being read to a child, it would need to be explained how fractions are found which the book does not go into detail about It does however progress in difficulty of fractions and give the answers at the end to each question that is asked throughout the book.

15. author says:

This book was helpful for me to understand fractions for myself so that I could help my students The pictures are interesting and can make it possible to have centers that involve making parts of whole with fractions.

16. author says:

This was a great book I loved the pictures, and it explained fractions fairly well It used images and tangible objects cows to explain it instead of just showing fractions on a page It got a little complicated near the end, but it was still a worthwhile book.

17. author says:

Whole Y Cow This is a fantastic book From first grade to fifth it is a winner Children will be engaged and entertained The story line is whimsical and fun while the illustrations leave children laughing at this silly, little cow.

18. author says:

This book would be good for 4 5th grade levels because it is all about learning fractions in a fun way The illustrations are very fun as well and it is a good interactive book with problems for students.

19. author says:

This book is for higher grades, like 3 4, who have already seen fractions This would be a good center activity there are questions on every other page asking the reader to analyze the picture fraction presented Not a very exciting read, but great illustrations.

20. author says:

A great picture book for reinforcing introducing fractions The pictures support the text and the idea of parts and whole I love how the hens and other farm animals play a role in making the day an exciting day full of fractions.

21. author says:

I thought this book was a great way to show the student fractions The students would be able to participate with the book as well as enjoy the story I wouldn t use it to introduce fractions but I would use it as a review Great cute book

22. author says:

Not much of a story here but a good incorporation of fractions into a book Questions to the reader are included throughout about the fractions in each situation May want to have a dry erase board and marker handy for writing the fractions.

23. author says:

This book was so much less fun than I thought it would be I m not sure who the target audience is supposed to be from the cover, I d say Kindergarten and a Kindergartener could understand fractions if they were presented clearly Which they are not in this book.

24. author says:

This book doesn t teach about fractions, but it is a fun way to practice recognizing them I d recommend it for anyone first learning fractions or as a way to practice them after they are first taught I read it to my 6 year old and it was great for him

25. author says:

This book is a fun, colorful way to introduce fractions of a whole in the class The illustrations offer different fractions ex A cow is painted 1 3 blue, 1 3 white, and 1 3 red It also shows that you can find and use fractions in your environment.

26. author says:

The book discusses and illustrates fractions throughout It is a nice way for children to visually see fractions Also the students can make their own fractions using examples from the book It is a nice book for younger students to start introducing fractions.

27. author says:

What a great book to teach students about fractions A student could also be directed to write their own fraction book after reading this cute story

28. author says:

I liked that this story was about fractions and fractions are sometime hard for students to understand I would use this as an introduction to fractions in a 1st or 2nd grade class.

29. author says:

How fun This sweet book is about a cow who is looking for fun Children are engaged by rhyming text and fun pictures as they say the fractions shown on the pages Great introductory.

30. author says:

a fun book about math could be a fun new way to incorporate math lessons into the classroom.
