Upgrading

Sometimes I drive myself crazy changing things that don't really need changing.  I'll redo my lesson plan format, or reorganize work station folders, basically anything other that what I really need to be doing.  This week I've had the urge to spruce up some of the worksheets we did earlier this year (anything other than getting my report cards ready).  I'll share them as I finish, so be sure to visit again soon.  The first one I have ready is a rounding worksheet to give students a little extra rounding practice.



We've continue studying fractions, and I've realized that my students desperately need some manipulatives for understanding equivalent fractions.  I'm now waiting on an order from Lakeshore Learning, and I'm so excited you'd think it was Christmas.  While we wait, we're working on adding and subtracting fractions with common denominators.  I know that's not technically in our standards, but I don't think it will hurt anything to introduce the concept a little early.


I've pretty much given up hoping for nice weather to conduct our heat experiments (we have to do them outside), so I've skipped ahead to magnets.  I just love teaching magnets, because they're fun and easy!  It just doesn't get much cooler than floating magnets:)

Thanks for the rounding sheet!! We are doing equivalent fractions in 4th and they STILL need manipulatives!! It would seem like they could see it but they still struggle!!
