Math with Mom and Dad

On Thursday,February 18th,the math period was not the same as everyday.Special visitor were present in our class.Seven parents were invited to attend the math class with their children.Students were divided into 7 groups and every parent joined one.The session started with a powerpoint presentation:''Fantastic fractions".This presentation defined what are fractions and how do we use them in our daily lives.Then,collaborative work started.Students' and parents' job was to compare unlike fractions using fraction bars.Each group selected a reporter to announce the group's result.At the end of the session,every parent filled a questionnaire to check if they enjoyed this session and if they would like to repeat this experience with their children.Also,every parent took a thank you card for their effective contribution. When mom and dad are present Learning becomes definitely so much fun!As for me,I enjoyed teaching this session.
