Week 20

Equivalent Fraction Race

We started the week with a math lesson from our math coach, Mrs. James. She helped us with equivalent fractions and adding/subtracting fractions. The kids played a game making equivalent fractions. You can see that Timothy is having fun!

Fraction Race

iPad app

The kids have been enjoying the iPads were have had access to. Math Puppy was a popular app this week. They love to play Stack the States on my iPad. Every time we have free time they want to play.

Big word

These are the students that got the big word the other day! Each day we have a big word to figure out. I post the letters in abc order and they rearrange them to find the big word. I give a ticket for the Good Job Jar to the first 3 students who get the word correct. Congrats to Talia, Max, and Amerrit!

STUDENTS: I'm getting excited about starting chemistry soon! We just need to finish the digestive system and the light path. Then we start our big chemistry unit. What has been your favorite thing we have done in science so far this year?

  6. Hey Guys! It is dissect, not digest. If you digest it that means you ate it. Ew! :)

  15. How do you play the Equivalent Fractions Race? Thanks!

  16. To play equivalent fractions you need 2 dice. Roll them both (they can't both be the same number). Put the small number on top and the large number on the bottom to form a fraction. Once you and your partner have a fraction written down you race to fill up the row with equivalent fractions. The first one to the end of the row (with correct answers) wins that round.

  17. LOVE your equivalent fractions game. Are you willing to share the document? Thanks for sharing! :)

  18. FWIW, the second line made a common error by skipping 12.

    We get so used to counting powers of 2 that, at least for me, when I skip-count fours, I often skip 12!
