Shading in Fractions
Learning: Today you will identify and shade in fractions. # What will you do today?
Purpose: This will help you become even better and faster at naming fractions. # How will this help you?
Transfer: This is very much like what we did yesterday, but with some different directions.
Today you will shade fractions. For example, if I have a circle like this and I am told to shade in 1/4, what would I do? Continue with other examples if needed.
Your worksheet (hold it up) will have problems like the one I just did on the board. It has circles with fractional parts. You are to color in the correct number of parts to show the fraction written below the circle. # What are you to do?
Circulate, reinforce, and offer assistance during guided practice.
Correct papers together.
Today you got more practice at identifying fractions. By now, you are a master at this.
