Just wanted to share some fraction fun from our first day of fraction review! I like to dig in by really getting students thinking–no fill in the blanks for THIS review! Check out what we did today to kick off our fraction studies.
One thing I love to do is to start off lessons with discussions… we start in discussion pairs and then share out key ideas with the entire class. These “Discussion Starters” are simply true statements that might be interpreted in different ways and can get students talking about what they might mean and to think of examples. We practice our math talk too–adding on to what others say, asking or clarification, and so on. We had some GREAT ideas shared!
