What's a Gram? Equivalent Fractions. After the opening activity, I bring the class back together as a whole to discuss equivalent fractions.

I let the students know that today, we learn how to create equivalent fractions. This aligns with 4.NF.A1 because the students explain why a fraction a/b is equivalent to a fraction (n × a)/(n × b) by using visual fraction models. The students use multiplication and division to find equivalent fractions. The fraction strips are used to give a visual of the equivalent fractions. Before discussing Equivalent Fractions.pptx, I wanted to clear up a misconception that I heard while walking around the room to listen to the students discuss the two shaded fractions. Common Core.

Tim was so hungry that he ate 10 slices of bread. I give the students a few seconds to think about the question.

This can be an overwhelming and frustrating assignment for many students in the upper elementary grades. Due to this, all fourth through sixth graders at our school begin research projects in January using the same note taking method. While this is not the only method for note taking, it works beautifully with this age range. Once sixth graders have graduated from elementary school, they have created a minimum of three research projects using this method, most have created more, and are proficient in this method. Here are the basic instructions for the process: Writing a Short Research Project ~ Note Taking Method » Book Units Teacher. Research Paper Lesson Plans. Teaching for Learning.
