Fractions! When teaching fractions with grade sevens they are always all over the place for understanding. I started the lessons while online, due to the way in which the year was, so I started with equivalent, then common denominators then multiplying, (this was suggested by another teacher), then adding and subtracting. I found the kids were very confused and I have to back up and reteach a lot.
Reflecting now, I would have pivoted at the start and found some students did not have a clear understanding of whole and part, then started with adding to make whole.
