Hi there,

I really feel for you, as I can see your passion for teaching! YouTube videos really helped me, and, when you have your whiteboard, sit down and immediately write out your iffy times tables, and fractions.

For me, I wrote down the 6, 7 and 8 timestables, and I also wrote down that 0.125 is an eighth and that 0.875 is 7/8 or seven eighths. This really helped me, as I then had a memory bank to refer to and just had to make sure I listened to the questions. Also, write down the important part of the question as she’s reading it out for the first time.

Practice makes perfect. If you are still struggling, maybe seek an assessment for discalculia - if you are feeling fuzzy and confused when you try to picture fractions and numbers, perhaps something is holding you back that needs to be sorted out first? I’m no expert, but a few children at my school have this, it’s a little like dyslexia, but for number processing instead.

Wishing you the very best of luck!
Lucy
