What Are Fractions?

Today the children inquired into fractions.  They found out that their classmates were useful resources in their share time and had many meaningful conversations that led them to have a beginning understanding of what fractions are.  It was a wonderful sight to see children taking leadership to help teach their classmates their understanding.  Below are […]

Can you find the line(s) of […]
