Repeating decimals as fractions and some other stuff too!


     Next week I am going to training on Standards Based Grading to learn how to enter it into our grading system. We have a choice next year as to whether we want to do Standards Based Grading or not. Then the following year everyone will have to use SBG. My department decided to get trained and jump right in this school year. This is going to be quite a learning curve for me as I have graded using percentages and standard tests and quizzes for 28 years! This summer I am going to be busy reading all the great blogs out there with info for SBG. (Please put some positive vibes out there for me that my head will not explode during the training from overload:)
     The last week of June I am taking  a course on Geometer's Sketchpad. I have wanted to learn how to use this but just haven't had the time to sit down and do it myself. I sometimes have to pay someone to make me actually take time to look at it. I am excited about using this program. One of my goals for next year is to incorporate more technology into my classroom, so this is one of the programs I am going to use to do that. 
      My posts over the summer are going to be short because summer is just crazy. I'll be putting up some foldables that I will collate into a unit at the end of July to get ready for school. Here is one on made for writing repeating decimals as fractions.








Click here for the outsideinside and practice page  for the foldable.
     I really like the kids to write in their INB's and not have everything written out for them. I do need to make some additions to the foldable so my kids who have difficulty writing and processing won't have to write as much. I'll just add that to my TO DO LIST. I have so many lists I have lists that tell me what list to look at. 
                                                           Til next time,

    1. You are going to love Interactive Notebooks. It takes the kids awhile to get use to all the cutting and assembly of the foldables but they get faster with time. Thanks for stopping by and taking time to comment. Stop by again!

  3. Hi Jan,

    I am working on writing curriculum for Anne Arundel County Public Schools and we are interested in using the foldable from this post in our math curriculum. Can you please email me letting me know whether or not we have permission to do so. ommiller@aacps.org

    Thank you,

    1. Yes, of course you may use it. I just ask if it is digital that you place a link to my blog so others may find something useful. I'm glad you like the foldable and if I have time I may make it look a little better for you. Enjoy.
