I started this post this morning and was getting ready to head out. I hit publish instead of save and then immediately deleted the post. It still showed up on network blogger so I’m guessing it was on google reader too. Sorry about that. Let’s try this again.
My students have been struggling with simplifying fractions. I wanted to make the whole concept of equivalent fractions more hands on. I gave them some fraction tiles and wrote 1/2 on the board. I thought we’d find a few and then move on to another fraction.
Ever have one of those lessons that evolves in front of your eyes and gets better than you planned? This was one of those moment.
The kids went to crazy finding ways to make 1/2.
