I love number lines:)
Kelly DeLong
32:53
Love this math discussion prompt. Great for kids!

I think many would say #4 is "no"
Lucy Anderson
34:11
They think fractions are only part of a whole. Not ever more than a whole.
Kim
34:24
Many think fractions are one whole number over another whole number
Juaacklyn Cunningham
34:58
I asked my 5th grade students to think of numbers between 0 and 1. They had no idea that there were any numbers between 0 and 1.

The IES document is a must read for folks. Add it to you quarantine reading list... if you haven't already studied it.
Funda Gonulates

Great point about starting number line work with whole numbers
Lucy Anderson
38:43
bar models so important to build up to this
Cindy Aossey
39:22
Lucy - I agree!
Kelly DeLong
40:48
Dee, I this links with your skip counting from last week. Math... it is all interconnected.
Funda Gonulates
41:13
counting by knowing the size of your units
Funda Gonulates
43:49
Connecting different models is very important
Kelly DeLong
45:43
Excellent conversation within the Zoom session. Love hearing your voice. This will make the video vibrant. Thanks everyone!
Cindy Aossey
46:34
Draw the line in the shape to make equal sized parts
Belle Rush
47:07
I hadn't even noticed that!
Elisabeth Read
47:33
I want to ask this student why they eliminated B. What were they thinking?
Cindy Aossey
47:37
I think the 1/6 is labeling the space in the line above
lisa.porter
47:43
Labelled the number line and made sure that 0 - 1 made the whole
Elisabeth Read
49:03
I also want to know why they drew the line above the number line going from 0 to 1. What was the student thinking and what does that represent to the student? Wondering what the student would do if the problem was greater than 1

It wasn't a numerical computation
Kelly DeLong

Beautiful way to visualize equivalence. Conceptual understanding. It is important for students to physically do this students to see the mathematics.
Kelly DeLong
54:07
Powerful!
Funda Gonulates
54:31
I also find paper folding for this perception very powerful. Folding a fourths into 12ths will also help them see that
Kelly DeLong
54:42
Using fraction bars, too
Jennifer Werner
55:00
I use them in my classroom
Funda Gonulates
55:37
These lessons have a lot of great prompts
Funda Gonulates
57:18
Once you develop a strong understanding of equivalence there is even not any need to teach any method for addition and subtraction. Kids will easily see needs for creating same-size units
Belle Rush
57:56
Those prompts would make great number talks!
Lucy Anderson
59:48
yes
Kimberly Smith

Would love a session on how to use JamBoard!
Kellem Classroom
01:01:40
there has been some conversation about number lines in primary. Can we discuss your thoughts after the session?

I like to learn how to use Jamboard better
Rachel Wingo
01:05:07
it’s amazing how they can check work
Kellem Classroom
01:05:24
Yes need a JamBoard session!
Elisabeth Read
01:05:27
Jamboard is amazing! Tons of ways to use it with kids!
