    There is a book about a lemonade stand that I found last year. It covers graphing, supply and demand and several other comments. You could do a search for it. My 5th graders loved it!!!

    Shel Silverstein's poem, "If I were one inch tall" is great with measurement.

    Love Shel Silverstein's poems. I also used "Smart" when I taught about money with 2nd graders.
