I was a little bit apprehensive about it since these are wee little fourth graders working on this tough stuff, but they did GREAT! Although I follow the CCSS, I thought it was a little silly that they don't include dividing a fraction by a fraction at fifth grade since it's easy enough to add in once they know how to divide a whole number by a fraction and a fraction by a whole number, so we just did it all. And we tossed in mixed numbers while they were at it. We started with a math journal entry about dividing fractions with visual models.
The Common Core asks students to read stories and literature, as well as more complex texts that provide facts and background knowledge in areas such as science and social studies.
This stresses critical-thinking, problem-solving, and analytical skills that are required for success in college, career, and life. Because students must learn to read, write, speak, listen, and use language effectively in a variety of content areas, the standards promote the literacy skills and concepts required for college and career readiness in multiple disciplines.
States determine how to incorporate these standards into their existing standards for those subjects or adopt them as content area literacy standards.
They include critical-thinking skills and the ability to closely and attentively read texts in a way that will help them understand and enjoy complex works of literature.
Students will learn to use cogent reasoning and evidence collection skills that are essential for success in college, career, and life.
The standards also lay out a vision of what it means to be a literate person who is prepared for success in the 21st century.Ken Burns is a type of panning and zooming effect commonly used in video production to bring still images to life.

This is the first book I have ever read on anchor charts for students. The charts are POWERFUL and really make an impact on instruction.
I was lucky enough to watch Dr. Linder teach my own students, using two of these charts.
the kids were glued to her! Providing educators and students access to the highest quality practices and resources in reading and language arts instruction. Dear Twitpic Community - thank you for all the wonderful photos you have taken over the years.
We have now placed Twitpic in an archived state.
Make your anchor charts colorful and print-rich. Use different colors and bullet points to help students discriminate between strategies and quickly access information. Use different colors and bullet points to help students discriminate between strategies and quickly access information.
And as final housekeeping, I like to review my expenses from the last seven days. I use ashio-midori.com, so this usually takes about 3 minutes to categorize and see if everything looks right.
