Third grade is a critical year in which students should develop strong foundations for understanding fractions. During this session, teachers will explore hands-on activities and tasks designed to support students in developing conceptual understandings of fractions as numbers. Teachers will deepen their understanding of the third grade fractions standards, seeing them as part of a progression starting in first grade and continuing into middle school. Participants will leave with prepared materials and manipulatives sufficient for work with a small group, including fraction squares, Cuisenaire rods and KNP IG activities.
