      AWESOME FRACTIONS LESSON! Ask the kids if they want 1/2, 1/4, or 1/8 BEFORE slicing cookies. It's great for them to see it in a form of a cookie because it just makes it more fun! Of course allow them to change their minds regarding which piece they want!!

      F is for First Grade: Math - cookie fractions - students vote on the fraction of cookie they want without knowing what fractions are - cut up cookies - let students change their vote

    Since I teach middle school I have typically 120 students each year. Spending initial time taking attendance in my grade book takes time away keeping students engaged in my lesson. I also need a system that the students and I could easily understand to keep track of attendance and discipline. I invented one that worked for those purposes and also helped me make sure that I invited each student to participate each day. All it takes is a bulletin board, paper cups, craft sticks, and clothes pins.
