I Love Math!!!

That message was posted by one of my students after submitting their assignment on Edmodo. This couldn't have come at a better time. And here I was feeling a little overwhelmed because a little video was not loading properly.  Not to mention the fact that after re-reading Delia Bush's post, "How am I Making This Work?", I have come to the realization that I need to create a calendar, a chart or something with their assignments and video schedules for the entire unit. Which means I need to plan ahead... way ahead.  (and if you know me, you know that is really out of my character).

If you are thinking about flipping your class, I would also recommend you check out Crystal Kirch's FAQ's on her blog.  I have mentioned before how her students use WSQ when completing their assignments.  I really want to give a "shout-out" to Crystal for commenting on my last post!  Just those little suggestions you made have made a big difference in such a short time with my students.  Thank you!

Now, I really need to get on that calendar.  Ugh!

Using Egg Cartons to Add Fractions
1/2 + 1/3



And the answer is . . . 5/6!
 

This activity came from  Actions With Fractions
1998 AIMS Education Foundation

P.S. I just finished a fanstastic webinar with Crystal Kirch! I can't tell you how excited I was to learn that I don't have to have the entire chart filled in before I give it to the students. I can't say how important it is to "hook up" with other teachers if you are flipping. Whether it be in person or online; it is so important to have a resource you can learn from. Thanks again Crystal!

  2. It would be such a great thing...to be able to plan way ahead!! How can we make that happen? I have been doing a lot of reading tonight and I have discovered that there are lots of people integrating technology in so many different ways and although I think what others are doing is really cool, I don't have to (and can't do) EVERYTHING that EVERYONE else is doing. I just have to keep on keeping on!
