We started learning about fractions!


 After all these years, I think I've finally discovered the best way to teach fractions on a number line.  It's a tough concept to grasp, but I'm hoping that drawing the rectangles (as shown above) might make the process a bit more visual.
 We had a total blast with Kahoot!  We even played student created Kahoot games!



 The question above is a public Kahoot.  That Bryan's Mom on the bottom right - she helped out while I took these pictures!



 Speaking of Bryan's Mom, she brought in these hats for the kids to decorate for Bryan's birthday:





 We're working on the rough drafts of our "Hand Adjective" paragraphs.  Here's an example from last year:

On a personal note, my 82 year old father has been having excruciating back pain, and I've been taking him to the Emergency Room and a Pain Clinic.  Last Friday (we had a half day to make up one of our snow days), I had just gotten home when the phone rang.  When we arrived the Emergency Room, we got an amazing Physician's Assistant, Shannon, who ordered every type of test available.  Well, my father has a new fracture in his spine and a mass on his lung.  This isn't necessarily good news, but we just wanted to find out the reason for all these ER visits so we can get my father some pain relief.  Tomorrow (Sunday), his 2nd fracture is being filled with "cement" - which will hopefully help with the pain.




Here's my father at Deer Island!  

Happy Easter and Happy Passover!  Have a wonderful week!
