Without a doubt the number one struggle I hear when I talk to teachers is that teaching fractions is a pain. Not that the teachers don’t understand them or know how to teach them but they are such a struggle of a concept for students to understand. And the fact that there are so many concepts to cover with fractions it basically could be taught every day for at least a full school year and you still may need more. I’m here to tell you it doesn’t have to be that way.
Helping YOU with Teaching Fractions
Recently I did a Facebook Live where I explain all about the Fraction Games Mega Pack that I have released that is one of my new favorites not only because it allows you to Work Smarter, Not Harder but also because it covers ELEVEN, yes 11, concepts all in one bundle with minimal prep on your part. If you don’t believe me, check out the Facebook Live Replay!
