Had a tough day at work...tried teaching my 3rd graders about elapsed time in which they count the number of hours and minutes between the starting time to the ending time. For starting times on the hour like, for example, 12:00 to 3:15 was so easy for them to understand..in like 5 mins they were able to figure the total number of hours and minutes in between BUT when we came to like 3:48 to 7:05, they were baffled. Even after an hour of modeling it again and again or showing them how to figure out the total number of hours and mins in between using different strategies, only 1 out of 5 finally got it. I am so exhausted from that lesson. I hope tmw they will get it cuz I have so many math concepts left to cover before the school year ends. Ugh!!!
Came home and walked the dog for an hour..now I am ready for bed! LOL!
