Taylor Downing is a first year 3rd grade math teacher on my campus. I had the opportunity to observe in her classroom on Monday while she taught a lesson on fractions.
We use technology to the fullest on our campus. Teachers have smart boards, iPads, projectors, document cameras, etc... The picture you see below is a timer presentation that is running while students are in small groups and centers.
Students completed fraction puzzles and used their math journals to record their answers. An extension activity at the small group table was to complete the pizza fraction game. Students took turns spinning a spinner and created a pizza. The person that completed the pizza first was the winner.
