### Shake Rattle Drop and Friends of Ten

We have been practicing our addition and friends of ten this week. I came up with a quick way to play shake rattle drop all on the one page. If you have never played Shake Rattle Drop, you need a ten frame (or this sheet) and ten double sided counters. You also need something to record with. Shake the counters in your hands, and drop onto the page. We always place the red counters first and yellow sides sencond. Write down the Friends of Ten! Go and fill the recording sheet up! It is great…

Ever since incorporating it into my classroom last year, I have loved seeing the variety of skills and strategies my students are working on each and every day. I also love that the segments are short, so we all stay motivated and the energy for learning stays high. I have been wanting to redo how I teach math for a while. As a student, I truly adore mathematics, but as a teacher, I was getting bored. Our district was looking into…

### Fraction Activities

During the school year I feel like I am scrambling to get everything taught before state testing. It seems like we just don't have enough time to cover all of the curriculum, so we are a mile wide and an inch deep! We were in such a rush to get through multiplying and dividing fractions, that I decided to go back and review those with the students before they move on to 7th grade. I decided to make some games/activities for the students, and I'm so happy with that decision. When the students…
