Snow days and cold days (cold, Cold, COLD) have led me to have very few instructional days this month. But it has given me time to do some thinking, planning, and creating. I am excited to share what I have been working on for the Wednesday WOW! this week!
I hope you can link up with a WOW moment from your week (personal or professional).
Next week we begin fractions with our little firsties. I always enjoy teaching this (probably because it is a way to discuss food---and I LOVE food!) But I wanted to come up with some new ideas...that got me thinking, planning, and creating :)
Here's what I came up:
First up...a Powerpoint to introduce fractions. It shows real images of where we see objects broken into parts. There are illustrations to show what a fraction is and what the numbers mean. There are even some problems where fractions had to be used for the solution. (Here is a sneak peek)
whole, half, fouths
whole, half, thirds, fourths
Each sort has several different types of sorting mats, different options of what to sort (really...it snowballed)
I think it could be all the snow days and sitting on the couch...but I am super excited about this set. I can't wait to use it next week. Hopefully, it will prove to be as useful as I believe it will be.
Because I am so excited about it...I want to give some away! So I thought I would throw a little giveaway! I haven't decided on the number of winners...it will depend on how many entries there are. The more entries, the more winners!

Just one more WOW for the week: one lost tooth!
