Developing Number Sense Round Up

Over the last several weeks I have posted several lessons I use to teach number sense.  Here is a list with the links in case you missed one or two.
You can purchase 12 meter sticks from Amazon by clicking the affiliate link below.

 Next, I wrote about creating a Magnified Inch and using this as a model for fractions between 0 and 1. 

I followed that up with how I extend the lesson to include mixed numbers.  My students have placing mixed numbers on a number line and creating their own helped.

 I wrote two posts about having students create their own set of fraction bars.  The first week I showed halves, thirds, and fourths.  The next week I wrote about creating sixths, eighths, and twelfths.
Last week I asked the question, "Can Calculators Boost Number Sense?". I would love some discussion about this issue.
