Today’s shelf elf had a little “mishap” with one of the workbooks. lol! The students are really enjoying looking for him each day. It’s been a very uplifting thing to see the students enjoy him. It’s funny to hear the different things they have to say about him. Mostly they talk about how creepy he’s looking at them. Haha. The lesson on estimating fractions went great. They really enjoyed it. Click here to see that lesson.
Tomorrow, my elf will be sitting in the shredding box with some red and green shredded paper. We will still be working on estimating fractions. For the activity tomorrow, I made fraction cards. Each student will have a card with a fraction on it. They will go around the room and find a partner. They will use theirs and their partner’s fractions to estimate the sum, difference, and product. Here is a link to the free fraction cards. These cards can be used in MANY ways! After having them find the estimated operations, I will probably have them find the exact sum, difference, product, and quotient.
