Long Division in Google Docs

  I was making a long division worksheet for my students in Google Docs when I realized that it wasn't under equations. Here's how to insert it.  This does not look very pretty so I have another video on how I do it in Google Sheets which takes longer but looks nicer. 

Task Cards with Canva Backgrounds

  I wondered how teachers had the time to create so many detailed and nice looking task cards.  I've learned that Canva is a quick answer to this and makes creating them easy and fast.  Here's a video on how I take what I created and make it into task cards.  My previous post shows you how to create the background.

Using Canva for Backgrounds

  Have you ever wondered how teachers have time to make all the creative backgrounds?  I know I did so, I started looking into it and found Canva is a great way too.  I started using Canva for backgrounds this year.  Here is how I use it to create the background. Next, I'll show how how I take the background and make it into task cards. 

Watermelon Pixel Art Template

  This is a template set for 10 questions. I have provided a video below on how to update it, it is very simple, you will not need to reformat.  The picture will start yellow and change to the watermelon slice as students answer questions correctly, the questions can be answered in any order and the picture will respond.  Watermelon Pixel Art Template

Summer Learning

  Learning doesn't have to stop just because it's summer.  You can incorporate math into daily things that you do.  For example, if you are driving to the beach and it takes 2 hours to get there, ask them how many minutes it would take. If they are older, you make it more challenging and ask how many seconds or have them calculate how long it would take if you went 65mph vs 60mph.  Often times, I hear that kids eat so much more when they are home.  The kitchen is a great place to practice fractions, addition, and multiplication.  One way to do this is to give them only 1 tsp measuring item and 1 cup.  I would recommend using the 1/2 tsp and the 1/4 cup.  Look through recipes together and have them make the recipe using only those 2 measuring items.  This is a good way to discuss how to make other measurements from what you have.   These are just a few way to incorporate math into the summer months.
