Third Grade Math at Valley Institute Elementary is SWEET!

Students measuring using candy hearts.Valley Institute 3rd graders celebrated sweet success on Valentines Day. Each student was provided a box of candy hearts.

In addition to reviewing fractions (writing fractions to represent models, adding and subtracting fractions with like denominators, comparing fractions) students measured different amounts of candy hearts in centimeters and inches to locate common objects within the classroom to relate the length.  Last but not least, students were asked to to use their data collection to create addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division story problems for one another to solve.  Fractions, Measurement, and Math are SUPER SWEET!
