 GreyhoundGirl 05-24-2018 09:24 AM i just did fraction museum (end of 3rd) and it was fantastic. I would definitely do something fraction since it's so hands on. Good luck. 1956BD 05-22-2018 07:11 AM Hope your demo goes well. morahsharon 05-22-2018 03:17 AM Thank you! Greatly appreciated. 1956BD 05-20-2018 11:20 AM http://mathwire.com It has great ideas for hands on math lessons. Maybe it will be helpful to you. kahluablast 05-20-2018 07:31 AM I was just watching the Fraction Museum video. Could be a nice one to use. You could adapt it to 4th by having them compare, add/subtract fractions, or make equivalent fractions. It would give good opportunity for differentiation, plus showcase how you worked with individuals. 1956BD 05-20-2018 06:43 AM Sorry no one has given you ideas. My favorite lesson was my introduction to fractions in third grade. I used the Hershey Fraction Book which I read aloud. As I read I also demonstrated breaking a Hershey's candy bar apart into its 12 sections as the picture book described. I used the document camera so everyone could see what I was doing as well as the pages of the book. (switching back and forth) The students each had a candy bar as well to do the same. It was challenging to complete the lesson before eating the candy bar! But the students were very motivated to learn about fractions. I am retired now but found that math lessons which included manipulatives, a read aloud or a video (usually from Study Jams by Scholastic) was better than just a dry lesson straight from the text book. I hope some other teachers respond. Good luck! http://studyjams.scholastic.com/studyjams/index.htm https://www.goodreads.com/shelf/show/math-read-alouds morahsharon 05-18-2018 02:31 PM Sorry - it's for math morahsharon 05-18-2018 02:04 PM Favorite 4th grade demo lesson?
