One of these days I'll post about something other than math. Right now I'm on a math kick and I gotta just roll with it.
I came across a new site (well, new to me) when I was reading Stephanie's blog 3rd Grade Thoughts.
It's the Teaching Channel. I love being able to go into other people's classrooms and see how they do things. I always get good ideas that way. The problem is I'm always teaching when they are so I don't get to visit very often.
I found this video that shows how to incorporate math into classroom management. I teach 3rd grade so my kiddos don't learn about negative numbers. However, a big push lately has been to find fractions on a number line and my kiddos definitely need more practice. I thought about using this idea to work on that skill. I still need to give this idea some thought but I'm thinking about awarding fractional points for their behavior (fourth a point,half point, etc). Of course, I would need to do A LOT of modeling. Any suggestions?
