Just to complicate matters a little bit more.....I decided to give my children some fraction word problems in Maths!
As a group of fantastic learners, the children all knew they were going to need a highlighter to help them pick out the important part of each word problem. Without even mentioning anything myself, all of the children were quick to ask for equipment to help them solve these problems.....such fantastic independent learners.
We even wrote our own fraction word problems for every one in the class to solve!
The photos show how not only do all of the children work so hard in all of their lessons, but considering they were worried about fractions to start with.....look at them now!!! I think they would be more than happy if we spent the rest of the year focussed on fractions!!
