Get your kiddos talking and writing about fractions, decimals, and character traits with this activity! Students will find the fraction of vowels in twenty words that represent ideals that are valued in a classroom. They will then sharpen their estimation and reasoning skills by trying to match the fractions to the decimals on the second page (preferably without calculations). This is the perfect opportunity to work with your students on estimation of fractions by referencing one-half and other benchmarks. A perfect activity for students to work together and talk about their reasoning as they try to get as many right as possible!
In addition are two sections where students identify the traits they see in themselves and others. Every day is a great day to reinforce those qualities and ideals that we hope to instill in our students!
