## Reflection: Organizational Systems Creating Fraction Strips - Section 3: Wrap Up

My class includes students who require support for fine motor tasks, and I prepared and marked their fraction strips in advance of this lesson. Each fold line was marked with a pencil to create a fold line and extra adult support was provided to help each student meet their goals.

Extra paper strips were available to all students, and I encouraged students to help each other if there was any confusion throughout the lesson.  Having rulers available for the thirds and sixths may also be helpful because of the challenges in folding paper equally into thirds.
