Have You Heard?

Educents is a new "Groupon-Like" site for education!

If you sign up before Friday, you can receive a $15 gift card to use at the site once it launches on April 2nd. 

I love my Groupons, so I know I'm going to love Educents!

If you haven't already signed up, you can click on the picture above to check it out.

(Yes, by clicking through my site, I would earn an extra $1 for each friend I have to sign up....but if you know me, I'll probably just roll that over into some type of giveaway for you!)

I've also been trying to find some videos for long division. Yes, the dreaded long division (which I know the standard algorithm is not required for fourth graders according to Common Core, but I still need to cover it since it will be tested in my state this year).

I found this silly little video.  I thought my students would think it's funny:



I also found this song.  Kinda catchy.  Hope to see my kiddos singing and dancing tomorrow :)




What tricks do you have for teaching long division?

  2. Hi there,
    I tried signing up for Educents through your link, but it kept giving me an error...the screen was off so I couldn't read what the error was. I tried it in Internet Explorer and Firefox, thinking it may be an issue with that. Who knows! I'll try again later :)
