Evidence of Learning!
Students in this group used white boards to classify numbers as different subsets. They discussed and learned from each other as to why an integer is also a rational number or why a whole number is an integer and a rational number!
These students each had a card. As we went around the group, each student had to tell which ring the number went into and all the sets each number belonged to.
Students watched a video on converting fractions to decimals and decimals to fractions. Then, they had to write a reflection on what they watched and submit it through google classroom.
How can I help in my child's learning?
Some of the skills you can help with:
*Multiplication Facts - multiplication war - they love this!
*Fractions to Decimals - Ex...when cooking and you need 3/4, say what is 3/4 as a decimal?
On my website you will find different practices of skills our students need! These are great resources for practice!
