90 minutes – half day
Upper elementary – Grade 3 – 6
Virtual (live webinar) or in-person
This workshop can be a standalone session for grade 3 – 6 teachers. In this workshop, participants will play games and learn strategies that use cards, dice, number lines, and other common fraction manipulatives to help teach the following fraction concepts:
- Common denominators
- Operations with fractions
- And more
Games will incorporate the use of engaging manipulatives that help students gain deep understanding of fraction concepts and will be tied to strategies that help students move from a concrete understanding to abstract levels. We will also share lesson plans and teaching sequences. Game-boards will be provided, along with assessment skill checklists and math journal extensions.
