Yesterday we started our Fraction boot camp and it was great. Fractions have been a huge struggle for my lil' third graders this year. My awesome teammate Erica found different hands on activities that the kids could complete each day. Our state standards have 5 different elements for fractions. Each day the kiddos rotate through an activity that goes with each of the 5 standards.
I created a Boot Camp itinerary to helped the kids keep up with what stations they had done. They also had to answer an EOG (our state testing) question that went with each standard.
