I love teaching upper elementary children. Surprisingly, I love the challenge of multiplying fractions, long division, and decimals. With that said, I love the way early elementary classrooms are set up. The centers, games, and hands-on activities make me as excited as a child at Christmas time.

I wanted my upper elementary math class to have the same fun and exciting math activities that our younger students get to experience.

My life has changed, as I now have the privilege of teaching my own children who are in the process of memorizing addition and subtracting facts, telling time, and counting money. Though I treasure these moments, I can’t totally forget the fun I had with those fractions.

With that passion still burning inside me, a portion of my blog is dedicated to my 3rd, 4th and 5th-grade teachers. Here are some of the hands-on, free, and fun math activities you can find on my blog!
