When my students learn about fractions in 2nd and 3rd grade, we create these fraction grids to conceptualize the numerator and denominator of fractions. Each student in my class creates one and keeps it inside a sandwich bag inside their desks. Students may refer back to it at any time.

Small-Group Instruction

Small Group Intervention

This strategy is a small group guided instruction, or in student friendly language, team time with Mr. Esparza. A group of 3-4 students is pulled as other teams are conducting a differentiated math investigation. Students are given a selection of materials to create models and formulate ideas. We work as a collective to identify our misconceptions by asking ourselves questions, explaining why, and checking for understanding. As a scaffold, students use hand signals and our learning goal success rubrics to check themselves for understanding throughout the process.

The fraction strip is a hands-on manipulative that students use to create models of different fractions by folding and then cutting rectangular strips into varying equivalent sized folds to investigate what fraction they can create. The strips are printed on different color paper so students can create and order various sized fractions from smallest to largest or vice versa.

Buddy Reading

Buddy Reading is a research-based fluency strategy I use with readers who lack fluency. In this strategy, my students read aloud to each other. More fluent readers can be paired with less fluent readers, or students who read at the same level can be paired to together. Buddy Reading can be used with any book since students can take turns reading by sentence, paragraph, page, or chapter.
