The Magic School Bus

| March 31, 2011

When I was a child, one of my favorite book series were “The Magic School Bus” books. In each book kooky Ms. Frizzle would take her students on one amazing adventure after another. I still remember how much I loved it when Ms. Frizzle shrank the entire class – including the bus – to a microscopic size and they were all swallowed by Arnold (The Magic School Bus Inside the Human Body). Oh, how I wanted to be a member of Ms. Frizzle’s class! I knew that I would be up to any challenge she put in front of me.

This week was a lesson planning week for me in a few classes. When I started to think about how I could infuse literacy into my math lesson I realized that I could absolutely go back to my favorite Ms. Frizzle. Since the books range a wide amount of topics, they can be infused into many different subjects, which is great.
