More than fun

I want them to be creating, sharing, researching, etc. I believe they will have a google account, but I'm not positive. I thought apps were only tablets. No? I'm hoping to integrate them into all...

Fraction of a Set

My students are pretty good at naming fractions of a whole, but when it comes to fractions of a set ... that's another story! They can do ones like 2/3 when there are 3 objects in the set. But ......

I agree: XtraMath

XtraMath is an incredible site! It even explains to the kids how to use it so you don't have to. Then, when one kid is done practicing their basic math facts, it automatically puts up the name of...

Thanks for the help!

Jov, I think they CAN use manipulative a during the test! I'll double-check but that might be the ticket. I agree -- this question is not developmentally appropriate. Simplifying fractions in first...

Fractions

AD, we also follow our state standards (Virginia) instead of the core curriculum. We have a whole unit on fractions. Kids are good about telling one-half, one-third, three-fourths, etc. of a shape....

Ask the kids

My first response is to ask the kids. They'll tell you what they like. Off the top of my head, I'd list math games or any other type of game. We do games on the Smartboard or jigsaw puzzles on the...
