This week the students in 4EK have been learning about fractions. I introduced the topic through using the app “Near Pod” focusing on the lesson Basic Fractions. In using this lesson on “Near Pod” it helped the students to revise their understandings of fractions. Below is a video from the lesson.
Throughout the week students have been learning how to place fractions on a number line, recognising equivalent fractions and adding fractions with the same or equivalent denominator. I found a fun new way to help student recognise equivalent fractions through the use of hopscotch. Below is a picture of the hopscotch I created within our classroom.
The students in 4EK also created A3 posters to show their understandings and knowledge of equivalent fractions. Below are some student examples.
