First of all, this task has been amazing. I used it to introduce this concept. The visual of shoveling the driveway is great. Although I may not go through the entire unit, we have made it to the second day. My one concern right now is that many of the kids are not seeing the second fraction in the models. For example, once we show 1/3 of the remaining snow shoveled the second time and split the 3/4 into thirds, having the smaller parts now showing confused them as to where the thirds are located. I don’t know if I made any sense with that. I think the idea of labeling it like a number line might help a little. I’ll try that in my next lesson.
