Life of Fred: Apples

LIFE OF FRED MATH!
We started a series of books called Life of Fred Math. They are proving to be excellent books. My son struggles with seeing math in the real world. He often asks: "Why do I need to know this?" Life of Fred is a welcome change for him. The stories are often funny and they go through a day with Fred, directly relating Math to every day life experiences. We've been doing the work at the end of the chapter on the wipe board. They draw Fred and some of the things that happened in the chapter and then answer the questions. The series starts off with Apples and it is very easy for them but that's okay because I'm looking for him to 'see' and 'feel' the math around him. I have the next few books so we'll continue on with them alternating it with his math program. Here are some sample pages:
