Math Journal Sundays - Fractions

The end of the year is in sight, and that means we're almost at the end of our math journals for the year.  I hope you have enjoyed (and maybe even used) some of the ideas I've shared with you this year.  Without a doubt, interactive math journals have been the best addition to my classroom this year.

I have two journal entries for fractions to share with you today.  The first one is a pinterest-inspired fraction flipbook.  The students drew the fractions and then found the decimal and percent for each fraction in the flipbook.  I completed two examples with them, then the students completed the rest of the book on their own so I could assess for understanding.

We also completed a pizza fraction to study equivalent fractions.  We divided our pizza into sixteenths and then I gave the students instructions on what fractions to include on their pizza.  Underneath each section of pizza, students figured out the decimal and percent for each fraction.

For both journal entries we completed left-side thinking pages where students rewrote the learning goal in their own words, told what they already knew and what they learned, gave proof of their learning, and completed a reflection.  Come on over to my blog to see our left-side thinking, and a few more pics and instructions for our completed journal entries.

Have a wonderful Sunday evening!
