Reflection: Adjustments to Practice The Equivalence: The Domino Effect - Section 2: Drawing fractions using dominos


For my students to master this standard, I realized that they needed a concrete model for them to draw those equivalent fractions. This notebook sample  shows how the student had a hard time drawing an equivalent fraction. Prior to my adjusting my lesson, many students struggled and it left them frustrated. I responded by trying something more fun and developing a very concrete template for them to use. My advice? Use the template! It made mastering this part of the standard so much easier!

  Adjustments to Practice: The template really helps!
