Inquiry Learning in Mathematics Canceling Zeros When Looking for an Equivalent Fraction Canceling Zeros When Looking for an Equivalent

Fraction Sort these fractions into two categories. Category 1fractions for which you do not get equivalent fractions when you cross out zeroes. Category 2fractions for which you do get equivalent fractions after crossing out the zeroes. (Describe what mathematical principle allows you to cross out the zeroes.)

Inquiry Learnin g Nonexamples Strategy-Frayer Model Quotes from WV Teachers

I was so excited last week about the way my students are using their science notebooks! We were observing hair on our arms and bird feathers to begin a unit on types of animals. They were recording the information they observed in their science notebooks. Previously in reading we had worked with a venn diagram to compare two stories. While we were working observing hair and feathers with hand lenses, one of my little boys said "Hey, can't we use one of those circle things to write how they are alike and different?"

I was sooooo excited! He had applied the graphic organizer to science and it was wonderful! My students are in love with science this year! I have been making our curriculum as hands on as possible. I have just received two books I ordered to teach one of the lessons from the "Picture It!" resource book we received at TLI. I just wanted to share because I am so glad to be inspiring little scientists!! Melissa Rose

Quotes from WV Teachers Oh my goodness---it is not that the math was right or wrong...however, it was the conversations and group work that was taking place that really captured me. Watching 4th graders take numbers apart and put them back together again for what is truly their first experiences in doing this--is amazing. I have found myself picking up my flip camera and taking pics and short video clips just to reflect on later to

analyze student growth and use as an assessment. Today during Quick Images I had a student ask me if we could do this all day!!!!!!!!!!!! Another said, This is fun!!!!!!!!!! Tonya Hatcher
