Equivalent Fractions

Today in math rotations we baked! Students were given a recipe and had to double it before we made the slice. We talked a lot about equivalent fractions! And they're very impressed that they've made their for morning tea for tomorrow.


We were savouring the sunshine this morning when we listened to the next Rowan chapter outside.

8:50am bell

I'm so impressed with those students who know how to start their morning the right way. Reward cards 'punched' to those students who are organized, mental maths book open and on track by the 8:50am bell!

Week 7

Yesterday we had a class brainstorm (Y chart) to get the ideas flowing. Students came up with ways to describe an Olympian before their big race. Following this, students spent 25 minutes writing. During this time, students were given small amounts of feedback to guide their writing. It was wonderful to read the descriptive pieces and I look forward to sharing some with you.

In one word...
