It felt like a fail.
I’m sure I just need to rethink how to implement this.
I was excited.
The kids were not as enthusiastic as I.
A few of them engaged in the discussion.
For many, I felt like it was time wasted.
There were misconceptions uncovered.
Maybe I need to go smaller.
Engaging the whole class today was unsuccessful.
Today, we were looking at Fractions, Decimals, and Percents between 0 and 1. Some misconceptions uncovered: Positive Fractions and Decimals are less than 0, Negative Numbers = Fractions and Decimals, 0.321 is less than 0.3 because it’s thousandths.
These boys were thinking today and for every child who was, I’d like to make this work.
