The wacky fun continues as a young boy awakens to find a half-head of hair. After chugging down his glass of milk that’s two-thirds gooey paste, he and his friend are off to camp for a day of fraction fun and an out-of-this world soccer game. The first two books in the series, One Odd Day and My Even Day, won a Learning Magazine’s 2008 Teachers’ Choice Award for Children’s Books. As with the series’ other books, the imaginative illustrations are sure to please young readers as they scour the pages for countless oddities hidden in the art! The “For Creative Minds” learning section includes “Fractions Around Us” and “A Special Pizza” Party activities.
This individual eBook App will read-aloud in both English and Spanish with manual or auto page advance. Switch language any time and the page text changes and the reading restarts on the same page with your newly selected language.
My Half Day is designed to be both a fun-to-read story and a launch pad for discussion and learning. It features a 3-page For Creative Minds educational section in the back. And, through the "More.." button on the navigation bar, you will find a 57-page cross-curricular Teaching Activity Guide (includes 3 coloring pages available for printing on our website), 3 interactive quizzes (Reading Comprehension, For Creative Minds, & Math Word Problems), a page of Related Websites (linked with parent gate) for further study, and a short trailer.
There is also an optional login feature (on the navbar with parent gate) so that you can view My Half Day on your computers (login through our homepage), androids (new App available in March), and other devices). The login also enables eBook access though our free Fun eReader App and consolidation with other Arbordale titles.
