Subject: Re: Teaching Fractions to Exceptional Children in High School
Sounds like you are off to a great start. One idea might be to use egg cartons. You can have them fill 1/2 and observe the different approaches students use. You may also be able to work with simple addition ideas with the carton. For example 1/2 + 1/3 = ? If they filled half, then a 1/3 of what remained, what is the answer? You can explore equivalent fractions and the like. This would be a good preceding activity to measurements! -Claudia, for the Teacher2Teacher service
