Well I was taught to always find the same

Very well said!!
hey everyone, sorry I'm late!
the size of the whole is different (if each candy bar is its own whole)
well, the amount of pieces. they are all wholes
We use the Hershey book during our KY Family Math Night.
1/4 + 3/4 = 1
1/12+1/12+ 1/12 = 1/4
Can't limit to 1/12. Not possible:)
picture pie is a great activity
Oh I used to do this in my classroom!!! Loved that book!
I love how we can see the 1/8 + 1/8 is the same size as the 1/4
Ears at 2/8 together
they used the same amount of fractional parts
the bunny is 4/8 which would be the same size as the lady bug
1/2 + 1/8 + 1/8 + 1/8 = 7/8
Very creative ways of engaging with fractional units
I think Cindy is counting the wing that we do not see
Love the opportunity to use language to describe and reason
Great visual for adding unlike fractiuons without having to make like
one whole was the total on the previous page
I have watched students play this game. The number line is a powerful tool.
We all know how I feel about number lines! :-)
I really like that. I was just confused about how to play at first.
That's why we demo! :-)
I really like that activity!
Games like this encourage fluency.
Really good for flexible thinking!
Love that question.
Connects it to previous fraction learning
I agree and it connects it to conceptual so it is easy to understand. Finding the common denominator makes it seem procedural.
"We haven't changed the numbers, just the way we named them"... love that!
:-) Like equivalence is also renaming!
The power of technology to visualize the mathematics.
THANK GOD FOR THE VISUALS!
I wish I had that when I was taught. I am a visual learner too
I too am visual and really need to see that
SOOO Many of my students need to see the math.
That's why I only "got" fractions through teaching because everything I was taught was a procedure.
I agree with Amy
Need to help students develop fraction sense
My favorite resource!!
I love Howard County resources.
One stop shopping from KCM
Awesome Resources Thanks so much
Great resources! Thanks, Lisa!
YES - KCM is one stop shopping.
Thank you, Lisa! Amazing resources
I'll definitely be sharing! Thank you, Lisa!
Sometimes, depending on the situation
I hope they can eventually relate it all together and understand it.
Thank you Lisa!
LOVE the visuals! Would have helped me as a student.
thank you! this was awesome
Thank you, Lisa!
Always great information from you all at KCM!!
Great visuals and resources! Love the number line game.
Thank you! I really like the openness of the literature activity and the Hershey Bar images.
