Scav Hunt Sunday: Fences and Fractions

It's no secret I'm a sucker for an iron fence shot. I stumbled upon this fence downtown by a church, people had written messages on the ribbons and tied them on the fence. #bostonstrong

Three of the Make Way for Ducklings, I think these are Nack, Ouack, and Pack.

Mixed message, much? I just thought this was funny, one sign saying do not enter and one saying walk.

Hands on learning, that is. These fraction strips have made teaching fractions fun for me and the kids. Seriously, where were these when I was in 3rd grade!?

Monday through Friday I have a well oiled routine that has me up and out the door with-in 15 minutes of the alarm going off. I love the weekends because it allows me to soak up the sunshine as it streams in my window while I cuddle up in my bed, a far cry from the usual up and at 'em I usually do!

I love your iron fence shot. And yes where were the fraction strips when I was a kid? And I love to have time to read and be lazy. None of that around here lately!

Thanks for a great post.

The iron fence is my favorite picture this morning. Love the way the colorful ribbons stand out against the black fence.

Yea for weekends and a break/rest from our everyday routine.

Love your DOF in the fence shot!
Those ducks made me smile!
Fraction strips would sure have made mine learning of them much easier. I have high praise for math manipulatives.

Great finds. I noticed a few were on your Instagram account too. (Love the ducks and the cuddle.)

I love that fence shot! I think I need those fraction strips now! I was never a good math student to begin with, and now it's been so long, I need a refresher. :-P
