    I reflected on two lessons involving fractions. I teach special education math, so all of my students are behind grade level. I do try, however, to cover as many grade-level concepts as I can. Before teaching anything involving fractions, I gave a pretest to see what my kids knew. Over half of them were not able to show 1/4 on a picture of a circle cut into fourths. That means we spent a lot of time reviewing fraction basics before doing any operations with fractions. I should have known they would continue to need this level of support before jumping into algorithms!
