THIS COHORT IS FULL. Registration is now closed. Please consider attending this training with one of the KCM's in-person cohorts of 3rd Grade Fractions.
Explorations in 3rd Grade Fractions
Grade 3 is a critical year in which students should develop strong conceptual foundations for understanding fractions.
During this 1-day training course, teachers will explore hands-on activities and tasks aligned to the Kentucky Academic Standards for Mathematics 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 receive prepared materials and manipulatives, including fraction squares, Cuisenaire rods and KNP-IG activities.
Participants must be able to participate in the live and interactive ZOOM meeting sessions during the dates and times listed below for this VIRTUAL cohort. Sessions are not recorded to be watched at a different time.
Teachers should not be working with their classroom students during these training sessions. If necessary, substitute teachers should be obtained to cover participant's classroom during these sessions.
2021-22 MAF Teachers are required to complete both half-day sessions. If unable to attend either of the 2 sessions, 2021-22 MAF Teachers must contact the KCM to complete that session with a different cohort.
