My 5th grade cyber students need resources that will help them understand fractions more clearly. In 5th grade, students are comparing fractions with unlike denominators, adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing fractions, and simplifying improper fractions and mixed numbers. Using trade books brings meaning to difficult concepts such as fractions for students in a fun and engaging way! Oftentimes in the older grades, we don't read "story books" to our kids, when they, in fact, love that activity still! Using the fraction books as a read along will help the students visualize and understand fractions. Though we have many resources available, being able to show them the concepts with hands on manipulatives and the HUE HD (Blue) USB camera for Windows and Mac (document camera) will be increasingly beneficial. It will act as a projector for lessons involving manipulatives. I will also be able to create meaningful tutorial videos to share with the students using it. In addition, the XP-Pen G430S OSU Tablet Ultrathin Graphic Tablet 4 x 3 inch Digital Tablet Drawing Pen Tablet for osu! will allow me as the teacher to easily and quickly provide the students with practice problems and examples. Currently, I use a standard computer mouse to do this and it is not nearly as effective as the digital tablet and pen would be. Using these tools to model math problems for my students will bring meaning to the difficult and often abstract concept of fractions.
