The grade 2/3 teachers are currently working on fractions with their students. We will support their efforts in PE by having the students record their results by rounding out to the nearest tenth using fractions where possible. For example, a student was to jump 2.82 meters in long jump, we would have them record it first as that- 2.82m. They would then have to record it again rounding out to the nearest tenth (2.8m). Once they have rounded out they record it like this:
A) 2 meters and 8/10 of a meter
B) 2 meters and 82/100cm
We'll see how it works out, but I think that this is a simple way to help reinforce what they are learning about fractions--Fingers Crossed!!!!!
