Connecting Academics & Parents Academic seminars to sharpen

Connecting Academics & Parents Academic seminars to sharpen skills and build understanding in Fraction Concepts Math may look different now. Theres nothing better than seeing your kids SUCCEED

and theres nothing worse than not being able to help them when they are struggling. Research from Dr. Drew Westen, Emory professor, and 100Kin10 Times change, technologies change, and knowledge changes about how to teach kids to apply what they know to real-life situations.

Thank you for joining in to learn more about how to help with math. Research from Dr. Drew Westen, Emory professor, and 100Kin10 Mathematics Florida Standards Focus

Grade 2 MAFS.2.G.1.3 Partition circles and rectangles into two, three or four equal shares, describe the shares using the words halves, thirds, half of, a third of, etc., and describe the whole as two halves, three thirds, four fourths. Recognize that equal shares of identical wholes need not have the same shape. Learning Progression: Factions 5

Copyright 2009 Engage 6 Copyright 2009 Engage Do these rectangles show fourths? Rectangle A

7 Rectangle B Copyright 2009 The first goal in the development of fractions should be to help children construct the idea of fractional parts of the whole the parts that result when the whole or unit has been partitioned into

equal-sized portions or fair shares. -Van De Walle author of Elementary Mathematics - Teaching Developmentally Different Halves Is this piece the same size as this piece ? 9

Copyright 2009 Different Halves 10 Copyright 2009 Fraction Language We call these fourths. The whole is cut in to four parts. All of

the parts are the same size fourths. 11 Copyright 2009 Describe the Whole The whole is cut into three thirds. 12

Copyright 2009 Describe the Whole Use pattern blocks to show a whole as two halves. If the yellow hexagon is the whole, what other fractions can you model with the pattern blocks? 13 Copyright 2009 Practice counting the equal parts

Can you show me 1 whole? Can you count the parts? Sharing Ninas mom shared a large cookie equally among the three children. Show how Ninas mom will cut the cookie. How can you describe the piece of the cookie each child will receive? Agree or Disagree? Ninas mom shared a large cookie equally among the three children. Show how

Ninas mom will cut the cookie. How can you describe the piece of the cookie each child will receive? How can 2 people share 3 brownies? Real World Connection Take it Home and Try It! Warning: Implementing this engaging activity will result in an increase in motivation and long-lasting learning.

DO TRY THIS AT HOME! Give students dot paper and have them find halves, fourths or other fractional parts of an enclosed region. 19 Copyright 2009

Possible Delivery Models for CAP Sessions: SCHOOL PARENT NIGHT K-5 School invites parents to a curriculum night Break-out sessions offered by grade level and content area

Teachers who attended TTT or watched voiceover TTT video deliver sessions TEACHERS OR GRADE LEVELS OWN WORKSHOP Teachers who attended TTT or watched voiceover TTT video

deliver sessions to their own class of parents Grade level can organize a workshop on needed content and have own parent night Tips for Success in Organizing CAP sessions: Find a team of people to help with organizing the event Send home bright colored half-sheet flyers and use parent link calls to notify parents

Have parents rsvp Look for sponsorships from business partners/PTA to have snacks or a full meal for the parents Consider baby-sitting options on-site Consider time frames that meet the needs of your parents. Morning session, at dismissal, evenings
