The major concepts covered in this unit were understanding fractions as equal and fair shares, as parts of a whole, and parts of a set. Also, that students would develop a deeper understanding of the meaning of the numerator and denominator, would be able to identify equivalent fractions, and be able to compare fractions. In addition to the mathematics goals and communication goals of this unit, I was looking for students' attitudes towards fractions to improve.... on miscues from a read aloud as well as an understanding of the passage through a retelling and by answering literal and inferential questions. ... Students are encouraged to find aquot;just rightaquot; books using strategies like the aquot;Five Finger Rule.
