This week students have been busy exploring fractions. Mathematicians used their fraction cards, fraction bars, fraction themed technology tools and games to compare and find fraction equivalents. Student enjoyed using fraction manipulatives like the fraction burger and pizza to complete fraction work in their math workbooks. Math activities using fractionbased manipulatives gave students opportunities to practice identifying and naming fractional parts of a whole. Students also extended their practice time with fraction concepts as they worked with partners or within the structure of small groups to find fractional parts of given collections.
