Math - The Little Teachers That Could | Elementary Classroom Inspiration

Fraction Packed


We just cannot get enough of puns or units to help all of us (students included) out! I needed to buff up my 3rd grade fraction curriculum quite a bit so I created this fraction unit directly aligned to Common Core. My 3rd graders seem to have gotten a deep understanding of fractions from the last few weeks of work. Check it out!

Move it! Make It! Manipulate It!


Finally, I am able to see a project through to the end this week. It seems like I've been constantly playing catch-up these last few weeks. I am very excited to share this post, as I was in some serious need of motivation, and I found it with the help of an amazing presenter and math enthusiast: Mrs. Eliza Sorte-Thomas. I had the extreme pleasure of attending my 3rd math workshop she has presented at. She has so many wonderful strategies and tools, but I am just going to share a few, 3 of which that have been great for my 3rd graders learning area and perimeter and fractions. So if you are teaching area, perimeter, multiplication and fractions here are some great tools for you!

Robot Bump

Here is my FREE Robot Bump to add some fun to practicing subtraction games. I use it in math centers, Daily 5 Math and math groups. My students love the robots and all the color! Click Here or on the picture.

The Ultimate Measuring Challenge


My second graders just finished up their measuring unit. How do you accurately assess a high interest math unit, which requires lots of hands on skills? With an ultimate measuring challenge around the classroom of course!
