Fraction Frenzy

We have been studying fractions the past couple of weeks, and are continuing this week.  This week students are going to:

1. Continue to compare fractions as greater than, less than, or equivalent

2. Find equivalent fractions on a number line

3.  Use pictures and number lines to generate equivalent fractions

4. Represent whole numbers as fractions

 

Here are websites for practice. Try these out. There are seven different activities that range from Kindergarten through middle school. Be sure read the directions!

Mr. Davo Arrives!

Our surprise visitor has arrived!  Mr. Davo, a stuffed Tasmanian devil from Tasmania, Australia, arrived via mail on Tuesday.  Since then, Mr. Davo has gone to recess, played basketball in P.E., learned all about lines, line segments, and rays, and spent one night with Rory and one night with Joren.  He will be busy this weekend going to the Destination Imagination competition.  To learn more about Mr. Davo and his traveling adventures around the United States, go to his blog at:

Mr. Davo enjoys visiting the school library.

Fraction/Frenzy

 

We are studying fractions this week!  In third grade, students are expected to be able to:

1) show fractions and mixed numbers using words, numerals and pictures. 

2) compare and order commonly used fractions and mixed numbers using number lines, models, points of reference and equivalent forms. 

3) recognize and use decimals and fractions as ways of representing parts of a whole or set (e.g., 3/10 = 0.3 and both represent only 3 girls in a group of 10 students). 

 

Here are websites  for  practice. Try these out.  There are seven different activities that range from Kindergarten through middle school.  Be sure read the directions!
