Workshop Wednesday: Fractions

Happy Wednesday!

This week is going much faster than last week :)
 Today our topic is Fractions!

One of my favorite parts of my calendar is the daily component. We work with fractions every other day, so the kids are constantly being introduced to or having concepts reinforced. Plus, it's fun! (Seriously, if you have a SMART Board, I cannot emphasize enough how awesome this is...yes, it is an investment-but well worth it!)
This was yesterday. The 'theme' changes throughout the year. Last month was monsters!

When working with fractions, I love to pull out the fraction bars.
I also have circles, but I prefer the bars-easier to see equivalent fractions more easily!

I also have a ton of centers from Jennifer Findley - she has a wealth of wonderful, fun centers that are reasonably priced.

Hers also have a handy CC alignment sheet in the front of each packet-some are higher level (i.e. 5th grade), so they work for your 'enrich' kids as well.
