Happy Tuesday! It has been a rainy one over here in NC...I mean, rain ALL DAY. It hasn't stopped! I kinda want to crawl into bed and just watch TV! Maybe if I can accomplish a few things off my list for tonight I can do just that!
I have been teaching fractions now for awhile. Just this past week I started teaching finding the simplest form! After yesterday, I wanted to pull my hair out! About 6 kids got it and the rest...ugh! These kids are really getting fractions too, but this part...not so much!
So today I tried more of a visual way! I used drawing out fact family trees and it really helped! Many kids, even the ones that really struggle with math finally got it! So today after work, while sitting at Starbucks (waiting for my cat to be ready at the vet-he had 7 teeth pulled today) I made these posters to give them tomorrow!
I added some practice problems and there is my remediation group activity for tomorrow!
Does anyone have a way they teach simplest form their kids? Leave a suggestion with your email and you might find yourself with a goodie in your mailbox;)
Another thing I have started working on is a new TV show theme set of fonts. If you can guess what this new TV show is, I will email you my font license for free! It is another favorite show of mine. It is still currently on and is in it's 9th season!
And last but not least, don't forget about my sale and my mega 700 follower giveaway! The sale ends tomorrow night!
Here's to getting things accomplished tonight so I can relax!
