Math Reading and Writing

One center in our Math Daily 5 is reading and writing. One choice at this center is to read a book and complete an activity. During last week's unit on fractions, Hershey's Milk Chocolate Fraction Book, Give Me Half, and Go! Fractions were some titles available to read.

The students can also choose to write about fractions. A weekly multiplication sentence is provided in which the students write the relating fact family, draw a picture representing the fact, and create a word problem. Other activities include using problem-solving skills to solve a riddle and solving word problems. The most popular activity at this center is the iPods. Students watched lessons on fractions and completed problems during the lesson.
