Oy, the Date again

Today would have been my dad’s 80th birthday. I still miss him.

I love when my spouse talks geeky as seen at his Decrepit Old Fool place.

And tutoring multiplication of fractions in Sixth Grade is very boring on either side of the table.
There has got to be a more modern way to do this. Plus somebody really needs to connect the information to everyday life.
I have hardly ever used fractions, even if I sure have cut a great many pies and cakes in my day.
Really, I try to help and make it interesting. I do know the lesson plan. The students manage to get correct answers. But golly, it seems so O.L.D.

Headed to bed. Alarm clock makes the noise at 5:35 in the morning. This week is a TA Sub job every day but Thursday. Not sure I like to be working long hours again, but the paycheck will come when school is off for Spring Break.

~~love and Huggs, Diane

    Multiplication of fractions has all but slipped out of my brain. At least you will know how to do it. My only fraction need seems to be addition or dividing them. How is your ice and snow right now?
