4. NF.1-Explain why a fraction a/b is equivalent to a fraction (nxa)/(nxb)by using visual fraction models, with attention to how the number and size of the parts differ even though the two fractions themselves are the same size. Use this principle to recognize and generate equivalent fractions

4.NF.2-Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators, e.g., by creating common denominators or numerators or by comparing to a benchmark fraction such as1/2 . Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with symbols >, =, or <, and justify the

conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.

4th Grade Annual Pioneer Day

Friday, March 18th, 8-11:30am

13555 Chaney Thompson Road Southeast

Huntsville, AL

Put this day on your calendars. Fourth graders at Challenger always enjoy a fun day of experiencing what life was like in the 1800's. Activities will run from 8:00-11:30 and conclude in time for students to go to their clubs. More information will come closer to the date. We'll be so excited to have as MANY volunteers as possible to help pull of a successful Pioneer Day! Students are highly encouraged to dress like a pioneer school child from the 1800's. Below is one website that has a few examples. A simple google search will give you many options. If you know or have a neighbor that was a 4th grader at Challenger, you might check with them as well.
