Thanks for taking us through the confusion of the class and reducing the children's confusion with a clever illustration. Well done.
The teacher in me clapped for the story and the great example!
I love teachers and I love kids, and I love the way you had them interact. Well done!
I was lousy in math so I really identified with Ava. I think in pictures, not numbers. You had me in the classroom sitting among the students. You gave a word picture to help me understand numbers. Very good illustration. Great article.
Congratulations on your 3rd place EC award, Cindy.

I loved the illustration you used in the story to help the students understand fractions. I have witnessed both the "I don't get it look" and "It finally makes sense look", too.
