Today students used digital cameras to take pictures of fractions; then they wrote sentences about their pictures. The sentences had to state an example of the fraction. This was a hands on way for students to understand that a fraction is part of a whole group.
Later students completed a scavenger hunt on the heart at Kids Health. http://kidshealth.org/kid/htbw/heart.html
Finally, students typed up their scary Halloween stories using pages.
Students spent three and a half hours today using technology, reading, writing, and doing math across the curriculum.
What a great learning day.
