Today I was subbing for a Grade 2 class. They were doing fractions in math and I noticed that there were 16 students in the class. We talked about a set of fractions. We divided the class into 2 groups of 8 and ttalked about 1 group bieng 1/2 of the class. Then we divide the class into 4 groups and finally 8 groups.
Then we looked at fractions of area. Each student took a piece of paper and we folded and unfolded it looking at halves, quarters, eighths and sixteenths.
Then the class made 2 fraction men. We divided up the tasks and I was very pleased with the results.
