Applying the Idea of Fractions
Today during Math, I had the kids take fractions and make the strips that show what they look like from 1 whole to 1/12 of the whole. They used a ruler, scissors, colored pencils, and a black and white template that I gave them. (That is the one you will see at home and we folded them accordion style.)
The colorful ones, even in the ROYGBIV pattern, we kept at school to use during this topic we are working on.
The kids worked by (MP.6) attending to precision to get the parts equally sized.
You can see Ely, Clover, and Loki are at different parts of the lesson. The kids behind them, Spencer, Heidi, and Langston are all very focused too.
