My Crafty Resources

These are just a few of the stuff I create when I have the time to spare.  I use them in centers for my class.
 Fraction Strips - The students cut them up and mix and match different pieces to solve addition of common fractions, mixed numbers etc.

 Rectangular Area Models and Strip Cut-outs


 
Circular Fraction Area Models and Sectors


This on the left is my 'baby'...
- Fraction Dominoes.  


When I was designing it on the computer, I was aiming for about 30 to 36 cards. But then, I became focussed on having as many fraction designs as i could create.  


However, it was only when I was finished printing that I realized that I made too many cards - at least more that I initially planned to do.  But I figure that the extra cards could't hurt. Sometimes, I shuffle the deck and divide it among separate groups to play.  Click here to get these from my TPT Store ( as a Ms Word Doc)! It's also available as a pdf here.

Teacher Nyla said...

It's just like regular dominoes. Equal values are matched by lining them up end to end.

i'm a newbie teachers.. can you give me ideas to create few stuffs to help me teach the children. to make the lesson more and more interesting? ;)

Well, I can tell you that as you learn more about your students, you'll realize that each child learns differently. Some may be visual learners, some may like their independence, some may need activities or oral practice, or interaction with the other students to help them learn. My philosophy is to first make it meaningful to them, help them to know why this content is important and how it can serve them later on in life. I try to make things as hands-on a possible. Use field trips, games, and manipulatives wherever possible. As far as making resource go, it's something that has always been inside of me. I live to create stuff. It just comes to me at the moment that I am teaching topic, an idea will just pop into my head. What you can do is practice on paper first, use it with your students, and make modifications along the way. When it's perfect, you publish it for printing on the computer then laminate, etc. I'll suggest that you visit classroomfreebies.com and simplylearningcnters.com for downloadable classroom printables as well. I hope this helps...

thats my problem. i cannot recognized my own students. i simply cannot evaluate them, what they like and what they passion are. i have one month teaching training to do at school now because im still a teacher trainee but i really want to make this work. most of my students having a discipline problem. then my time wasted to control them. so hard on me..

About Me

My Photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
