The changes in the Common Core for me in Math this year really have me scrambling. I am required to teach Division of Fractions to my sixies. To do this, of course I have to teach Multiplying Fractions. All well and good... We worked our way through various visual representations last week and learned a quick song to remember the steps to division: My song is to CELEBRATION if anyone is looking for a way to remember it.. leave a comment at the end of the post and I'll blog about it.
What I'm having trouble with is that I don't have any Addition or Subtraction of fractions this year. I SHOULD be doing the happy happy happy dance. This is ALWAYs a difficult topic. But I"m worried that because I am not required to teach it, and frankly don't have a LOAD of time to do so, that these sixies will be lacking in the fraction understanding department.
That being said, I made a little FRACTION ACTION with FRIENDS review game to help practice these skills next week before we leave for WInter Break. I figured I could get a day or two in or review and teach some basics after I assess Multiplication and Division this week.
I'm using my WACKY WORDIES HOLIDAY PACK

Have a great week everyone!
