We have started a new unit on Fractions in math. This unit will focus heavily on making fractions, identifying fractions, comparing fractions, equivalent fractions, and fractions on the number line. This concept has been introduced to many of the students through the use of ST Math. I have been so excited to see the students making connections between what they are learning with JiJi and what we are doing in class. I have noticed that many of the students struggle with putting fractions on the number line. This is an area we will focus on later in the math module, but today I found a video on our Eureka Math site that can explain a little better what your child will be expected to do when we get to this part of the module. You can access the video here:

Feel free to view this short 5 minute video before we get to this section of the math module. It may give you a better idea of what your child will be expected to do!

Have a great weekend!
