Fun Fractions Freebie and My Truth Monday! - Ideas By Jivey: For the Classroom

Fun Fractions Freebie and My Truth Monday!

Hi friends! I'm linking up with two of my BBBs for Math Monday! Make sure to visit Jess at I {Heart} Recess and Deirdre at A Burst of First for more awesome math ideas! :)

I am sharing an activity we used today in my classroom! We read the first part of the book, Working With Fractions by David A. Adler:
It's a great introduction to all things fractions! As I read the first part of the book to them, we filled in a notes activity in the students' math notebooks. You could really do this activity without the book, too. :o) It looks off-center because it is... I made it so that I could just cut off the edges to make it fit in their math composition notebooks.
Grab the freebie by clicking here or the activity above!

Oh! I almost forgot! I hope you'll come link up this Wednesday for Workshop Wednesday. :) We'll be sharing how to integrate writing and another content area!
And finally, since it's been a while since I've linked up to a "just for fun" linky, I'm going to link up to ONE MORE tonight. :o) Denise at Sunny Days in Second Grade is doing a fun one- My Truth Monday. And THIS Monday is a CREEPY one for this week's upcoming holiday!!


  1. I SO agree with you on the centipede thing!! I woke up one morning and turned on the bathroom light and a giant one jumped out at me. I killed it with a shoe, then left the shoe in the middle of the floor because I couldn't bear to clean it up. Super cool, I know. :-P

  3. I am a weirdo too! I can do the psycho triller stuff but can't even handle the commercials for the horror movies.Have fun with your continued fraction studies. A BIG thanks for linking up!

  4. I don't know that book-I guess I'll just HAVE to add it to my cart!!! Thanks for the freebie!
    I hate creepy crawly things too, especially roaches! Yuck!!!

  5. Thanks for sharing this great resource! Fractions make up such a huge portion of the curriculum for the upper grades, and they can be so tricky! I'm always looking for new resources.

  6. Thanks for the freebie! Those centipede things are so creepy! One time I found one in my bed when I was staying in a house near the woods. I ripped all the sheets off the bed and slept in a blanket on top of the mattress the rest of the night. It was very traumatic!

  8. I love teaching fractions - which is so odd since they were my biggest challenge when I was in school!
    Ugh, to cooked spinich! I'll only eat it in a salad and a cheese covered dip.

    Happy Monday!

  9. Oh man! I don't believe those centipede things are in Florida. I am the type with roaches to not even kill it. I will just yell for my mister to kill it. Something about the sound and the feeling. UGH UGH UGH!
