6. Methods Used and Procedures-

A. Introduction-

 1.Begin with these questions: What are fractions? What are everyday items that you can think of that have fractions involved? What professions deal with fractions daily? Why are fractions important? 2.Today we are going to answer the question, "Fractions....Are they intricate or elementary." 3.

B. Development-

 1.Without the music playing, go through the entire powerpoint slide slowly explaining each of the terms and how they play into fractions. 2.Go through the entire powerpoint slide for a 2nd time and this time focus on the pizza slides. Have students take their marshmellows and design the pizza examples by using the marshmellows Take the plate and have the students divide the plate as if it contains slices of pizza (see examples on desk). Students will take the marshmellows and show their amount of pizza eaten from the card they are given. Have students switch plates with the other students in the room. Students will write a fraction problem involving the fraction they created and the one that they end up with. Allow students to share their creations with the class. 3.Show the slide for the 3rd time with the music this time and allow for the students to listen to the lyrics as it plays with the powerpoint presentation. 4.Have students ask any questions that they may still have.

C. Practice-

 1.Students need to go to their math centers. 2.One-on-one conferences, while other students at their assigned centers.

D. Independent Practice-

 1.Art fractions with the numbers given to them for homework. 2.Create a fractions problem with the numbers and creations that students have been given. 3.Morning work practice and review.

E. Accommodations For Students-

 1.Centers created based on individual student needs and level. 2.Study Island set to student needs and level. 3.Modified homework problems.

F. Checking for understanding-

 1.Questions of high-order thinking skills will be posted around the room for morning bell ringer. 2.Students will create a mini lesson to help teach the rest of the 5th grade about fractions and how to work them out.

G. Closure-

 1. Repeat the questions from the beginning. 2.Exit Slip
7. Evaluation-
 1.What did you like about the lesson today? 2.What would you recommend I do differently?
