Equivalent Fractions

**Wow! I haven't written in over a week! It's amazing how quickly time goes by!**
**The past two weeks have been good, at school and otherwise. We had a two-hour delay one day (always interesting)!**
**On the personal side, I did cut out Diet Coke for more than a week. But, I had one each of the last two days, and interestingly, today I have been eating sugar constantly! I hadn't been monitoring my desire for certain foods; I was more focused on the mood idea. But as I was eating like my millionth Peanut Chew, I suddenly had the thought that I hadn't been this hungry for junk in at least a week......and then I realized I had the soda today. Coincidence? Maybe. I won't have any DC for a few more days, and will see how hungry I am for junk/sugary food.**
**At school, we converted decimals to fractions and fractions to decimals, worked with equivalent fractions, and converted mixed numbers to improper fractions and fractions to mixed numbers.**
**Today, we spent time on an equivalent fraction activity. I've made "decks" of fraction cards (54 in each). Each deck has 6 sets of equivalent fractions. Each group of students spread out the cards in their decks, and then had to sort them into equivalent sets. They did a good job communicating with each other about why certain fractions were equivalent. They also did a good job with organizing the cards.Successful sorting!**
**Now that the students are familiar with the cards and understand how this deck of cards is designed, they can play "Go Fish" with them next week.**
