# No not Fractions!

When Mrs. Felter was just a little Jessie, she hated fractions, but her mom never let her say “hate”, so she just disliked fractions thoroughly! She hated fractions because she just didn’t get them. Now that she is all grown up she realizes that fractions are actually really simple! The most important part of understanding fractions is figuring out how a whole can be split into many equal parts! Check out these fraction games to help you figure out the mystery of fractions without having to “dislike them thoroughly!”

Help the Turkeys escape Thanksgiving and make pies!

Shoot the fractions as they fly by! Mrs. F likes the slow version.

# Another Snow Day!

### Hello Antwan, Nancy, Shannallie, Karmyn, Yasmin, and Ixell!

I had a feeling you’d be visiting the blog today when you took a break from playing in the snow (please remember to where hats and mittens!) Did anyone else visit today who I didn’t list? Let me know by leaving a comment!

Here are some word problems to keep your brain working on this very cold, winter day!

### 3. Shannallie, Nancy, and Ixell ran 3 miles each day last week. If next week they plan to run 5 miles each day, how many miles will they each run after both weeks?

#### Here are some of my snowy day pictures from yesterday!

Second graders make it back to class through the Tuesday snow!

Wow! Our playground is covered in snow!
