Clutter-Free Classroom: FRACTIONS: Ideas and Activities for Teaching Fractions with the Common Core
♫ We ❤ Music @ HSES! ♫
Complete Lesson Plan using the PBS Ken Burns JAZZ documentary about Buddy Bolden creating the "Big Four," which gave jazz its lilting rhythms as opposed to the straight "boom-chick-boom-chick" of a march. Students will then compare and contrast the rhythms of marches and jazz based on the examples in the film, and explore notation, subdivision of notes and the altered and innovative rhythms found in jazz music. Includes links to FREE resources including Rhythm Pie Chart, Pieces and Worksheets
Students need lots of hands-on opportunities to really understand fractions. This site has a boatload of them!
Wowsa! - template to make a "fraction flipper" showing equivalent fractions/fractions that equal 1. Also find music and decimal flippers here along with related worksheets. Very cool!
