Describe Jack’s personality in Buffalo Before Breakfast.
Jack is very smart and respectful in Buffalo Before Breakfast. Throughout the book, Jack demonstrated that he was smart and respectful by asking questions about the tribe. He took a lot of notes because he wanted to learn about the Lakota Tribe. An example of when he was respectful was when he raised two fingers to show he was a friend. Jack is a smart and respectful character. Frame the answer with words from the question. Add the book stuff (evidence) Rephrase the first sentence. Earlier this week we used our new fraction strips to "play." The kids were instructed to use their strips as a educational tool to experiment with fractions. After about 6 minutes of "playing" we generated a list with what we discovered. After we made our list, I handed out a number line that had 01 and 12 on it. The kids were then instructed to "play" again. I was blown away with the comments that my kids shared! Below is almost word for word what they discovered. My class was comparing fractions. My class was adding fractions. My class was finding equivalent fractions all without my help! Experiences like this is what makes Common Core worthwhile for our kids. My students have a much deeper understanding of how a whole is partitioned into different pieces. Awesome job kids! Educational “Playtime” with fraction strips
· You have the biggest number at the bottom · They look like the rainbow · If it says ½ it has 2 in it · There aren’t any 9s or 7s · They are all the same length. They make up how big the 1 is · If there is 1/5 there are 5 pieces · The order of the fractions don’t match the rainbow color · Each time the number on the bottom gets higher, it shows the number of tiles · As the number on the bottom gets higher, you end up with more pieces · You need 4 1/4s to make 1 whole · As the numbers get bigger, the pieces get smaller and smaller · Can you add fractions to the end of the whole? · Could you have 5/4? Educational “Playtime” with fraction strips AND number line · 1 whole and 2 1/2s get you to 2 on the number line · you can use a whole and multiple other fractions · two wholes can get you to 2 on the number line · the whole is the same size as the space between the 0 and the 1 · If you line up the 1/6s and all of the 1/12s you get to the end of the paper · You can add different fractions together to get a whole · The bigger the numbers got, the tiles decreased in sized · You can get from the 0 to the 1 on the number line with different tiles · Does the size of the fraction decrease if you aren’t using tiles? · Can fractions be shown other ways? Would the sizes stay the same? · When you have a bunch of the same fraction put together you can think of it like multiplication. If you multiply the fraction by the number in the denominator you will always get zero.
