$1.20... WHAT?!

That's right!  I made a $1.20 on Teachers Pay Teachers and I'm super excited about it!

I am selling a mini project that I had my students do last year.  It's called Fraction Action in the Neighborhood and my students loved it.  The students have a set of rules for a neighborhood and they have to convert fractions to figure out what needs to be in the neighborhood.  They are figuring out things like, how many houses are a certain color, how many windows each house has, how many homes have pets in the yard, etc.

I had my sample neighborhood out a couple weeks ago as I was editing the project for TpT and one of my students from last year stopped by to say hi.  She saw the project and got excited and kept telling me that she really loved it.  She did mention that it was challenging and in the future I may want to have them work with a partner.  I did this with my 3rd grade gifted class, so if it is going to be done at that level, partners might be great.  If it's older kids, I think they'll be fine.

I am really excited to be selling products on Teachers Pay Teachers.  However, it is one of my main goals to put products out there that are actually beneficial to teachers and students.  I know what it's like to download things or find things that seem amazing only to find out it's not quite helpful.  I'm trying to create quality activities or projects that teachers can use year after year and students can be creative in showing what they know.  With that said, if any of you are also looking at my store or possibly buying things, please let me know if there is anything I can do it make my products better!

I'm never sure how to end these posts, so this time I'll end it with a quote from a student.  (It will help to know that I am 26 for this comment.)

Student 1: "Ms. Woodard, you forgot your glasses again."
Student 2: "Leave her alone, she's old and can't remember things anymore!"
