    1. You are so sweet, Amanda!! Glad to have you visit me! :)

  7. Looks good! Too bad I don't have an Instagram account to enter to get it free :(

    1. Sorry about that! Thought I would change up the giveaway and try something new!

  8. I can only imagine how many hours you spent on this! Have you read the book A Focus on Fractions by Petit, Laird and Marsden? It is all about teaching fractions and brings all the research done over the last 10 years about how kids learn fractions to a very teacher friendly level. It seems like it would be a nice companion book for folks using your materials who want to know more about how kids learn fractions.
