Fractions are often a complicated mathematical concept for many young learners to conceptualize. What’s more, understanding how fractions relate to everyday life can be an added challenge. In my practice, I continually design and redesign my lessons to be concrete, memorable and fun. I love nothing more than to come up with strategies and materials that really work for struggling learners and I strive to use engaging characters, implement animations, and integrate joyful and amusing activities. I regularly ask my students to provide feedback, so that I can tweak and refine my methods.
In March of 2017, I finally put my fraction ideas and materials together and created 31 PowerPoint slides as well as a 25-page adjoining document with interactive activities. I got a number of my students involved in the project, and I must say that I’m quite proud of the finished product. This new publication is available at Good Sensory Learning and it is titled Fractions are Fun: Animated PP Lesson and PDF Activities.
A Free Video Demonstration:
As a fun promotion, I turned the first half of the Power Presentation into a video for my audience. This provides a comprehensive glimpse of the publication, but I also hope that it will inspire teachers and students to have fun making the characters come alive when the lessons are presented in class.
I hope you loved the video and my new publication! I would love to hear your feedback.
