Is it just me, or has February FLOWN by?! It may have been the nearly 2 weeks that I was down with pneumonia—I feel like I missed a lot, and am finally catching up.
Our 3rd grade classroom has been a little beehive of activity this month, and we’re delving into FRACTIONS! Looking forward to setting up a classroom fraction museum on Friday. The kids will be “docents” explaining their fraction exhibits to the other classes that will visit our room. Can’t wait to see what they come up with!
We have some work to do before then so that we’re fraction “experts.” I LOVE trying to incorporate writing into math to further solidify the students’ understanding. That’s how this Writing RAFT freebie came about. It’s a February FREEBIE from me to you! J
RAFT stands for Role, Audience, Format, and Topic. It's a great way to differentiate writing and to provide choice and challenge! Students choose from 6 different writing prompts to show what they know about fractions! The prompts are color-coded for easy use. A great way to extend math and assess what students really understand about fractions!
