Did we mention that we are reading Polar Bear Explorers' Club by Alex Bell? Did we say just what a great book it's turning out to be? We did? Oh, well, let's just say it again -it's a great book!
The Polar Bear Explorers' Club tend to do their exploring in The Icelands. However, there are 3 other clubs -The Ocean Squid Explorers' Club, The Jungle Cat Explorers' Club and The Desert Jackal Explorers' Club. Each of the clubs have their own set of rules. All of which, Alex Bell has made laugh-out-loud funny. In fact, it was the Polar Bear Explorers' Club rules that made us want to read the book when our teacher shared them with us.
Take a look at some of them here.

Take a look at this webpage -and play the equivalent fraction game. here
(The rule is -what you do to the top, you must do to the bottom.)
See you next time.
