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.
