Group 1 & 4: Teacher Time
These two groups began working on a math sort that required them to add and subtract mixed numbers. I liked this activity, because it required them to:
Group 2 and 3: Khan Academy
This group worked on solving problems involving addition and subtraction of mixed numbers. I explained that they were free to watch the videos created by Khan Academy, however, they needed to understand that I am not teaching them in the same way that Khan will. They are always surprised to find that there is more than one way to solve a problem. I did attach a few Screencasity videos to their Classroom so that they could watch me solve the problems as an example.
Think Through Math
Every group does have 15 minutes on Think Through Math each day we do a rotation.
We completed a Fifth Grade Builder today, but as an exit ticket, I included an addition and subtraction problem that involved mixed numbers. I just want to see where they are at.
