WES Fraction Action

Third graders at Wellington Elementary School love fractions so much that Karlie Young’s class was caught drawing fraction models during recess. Taking learning to the next level is what Young loves to see in her class. She also teaches math to another class of third graders. Carol Bryant’s class enjoys fractions as much as her own. “It makes my heart melt to see that they want to do this during recess,” Young said. “They were very eager to share with me their models.” Shown above are students showing how to model fractions.
