So, who is super excited about teaching fractions?!?
Regardless of grade level, I feel like fractions is always the unit I dread. There is so much to cover, we always get to it towards the end of the year, and there is so much conceptual AND content to learn.
Last week, we played an AWESOME fraction game in 4th grade that got me a *little* excited!! There was so much differentiation easily integrated into the game that it was accessible for my low students, yet challenging for my high students. I LOVE activities with a "low floor, high ceiling".
This one is called Build A Fraction Wall.
Here is how we differentiated the game to make it accessible and challenging:
The students loved playing this game, and we as teachers loved it too! Next week we are going to play a very similar game called Fraction Race. We will use the same differentiation strategies to help all students be successful and grow!
