We're Off To See The Wizard!

Today was one of those days.  I am pretty sure that my class was invaded by Body Snatchers today and no one informed me.  We have workdays on Friday and Monday so I hope that we sweeties will return to me on Tuesday. I am so tired.

In fact, I started writing this post about 4:00 and couldn't keep my eyes open.  So it was naptime for me.  I feel a little more rejuvenated.

So today we learned about how to find a fraction of a group, i.e. 2/3 of 18.  I swear, I do teach more than fractions.  I feel like that is all I have blogged about the past three weeks.  Math is my stronger subject but I do teach reading and content. ha.

My lesson went well, but our activity did not turn out as cute as I had hoped. This concept is always so hard to teach to my little third graders.  Last year another teacher shared a little trick with me, called the "Oz" Method. So today we went on a wonderful field trip to Oz.  I made this poster with the cutest little clip art.

My kids really got the concept and they loved singing along to the Wizard of Oz music.  My craft didn't turn out as cute as I had envisioned, that may have been due to the fact that my lovely children were not on their best behavior.  

There were 40 bricks in all and the students had to figure out how many of each color they needed.  Then they colored some of the characters to glue on the brick road.  

It's up at my TpT store for free if you want any of it.  It includes the poster, the templates for the craft and a worksheet

Don't forget to enter my giveaway!  Happy Thursday friends!

  2. You have been posting good posts since you started your blog. The name of your blog is very attractive. It reminds us of the children. This blog was launched with the aim of teaching the children. During the age of 4-8, children learn in a faster way. The things that they learn during this age get registered in their minds. That is why it is advised to give nutrient-rich food for the development of mental and physical health during this age. The food given to children at this age has a major role to play in their further development. In parallel to this, proper care should be given to ensure their mental development. Parents and teachers should put more care on this matter. We can see that some children are interested in learning things. But there are others who are not so enthusiastic about learning. Teachers have to use some other methods to make them learn things. Games can be a good idea. In the case of Maths, teaching some short cut methods will help to make learning interesting to the child. Your blog is doing a great job by posting such tips that we can use to make learning, fun for the children.
