Creative book review projects

Posted by Melinda Kolk on Sep 30, 2020 11:54:33 AM

If you are struggling to get students to read, enlist the help of your learners! After all, who is better to choose the just-right book for an imaginative first grader than another imaginative first grader.

Crafting reviews of books that share an opinion about a book, not only builds comprehension and argument writing skills, but can also help you connect students to books they love.

Wixie and the Real World of Math: School Fundraiser

Posted by Scott Loomis on Sep 9, 2020 7:07:12 AM

Although students have been working with fractions well before sixth grade, multiplying and dividing fractions with other fractions involves more than simple computation and procedures. 

An essential skill for success is the ability to rationalize if results "make sense" -- a necessary application of estimation skills. For example, when multiplying and dividing any number by a fraction, is the resulting solution less than the original multiplicand or dividend, or more? For many students, understanding that their answer is reasonable leads to a clearer understanding of the 'real world' application of these calculations.

Editor's Note: This blog is part of a series of posts from former math specialist Scott Loomis on the real world math templates he has created for Wixie and how you can use and modify them for your own awesome performance tasks. You can read the backstory on his experience and expertise below.
