It was a GREAT visual! Have you used the T-chart to help students list the factors of a number?

When I express my emotions. And there are oh so many. I feel it physically & I feel it mentally when there are things I feel I should have said in any given moment. It takes awhile, I used to write it all out but now I'm growing more & more into using my words. Flowing into a 'say it all out' gal, cards on the table, heart on my sleeve.
