When kids complete these two pages and lay them side by side, it shows the whole cycle of converting back and forth between fractions and decimals! ????. They just LOVE to pull these back out of their folders to reference and are so proud of their creative work. Plus, the brain based features that are built into #doodlenotes lead them to focus and remember the concept better long-term! Whether your kids are just starting to rewrite fractions and decimals, or ready for their third year of reviewing it (it’s just one of those things!) ?, check out these fractions and decimals doodle notes in my shop. ? And if you’re just getting started with visual notes, head to doodlenotes.org for some great beginning resources too! . . . #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers #mathteacher #mathteachertribe #iteachalgebra #visualnotes #visualnotetaking #sketchnotes #homeschool #iteach5th #iteach7th #iteach6th #teacherproblems #teacherhacks #elementaryteachers #instateachers #teachingideas #wholebrainteaching #teachingtips #homeschoolcollective #teachertribe #middleschoolteachers #teachergram #maths #mathsteacher #prealgebra #teachmath
