We had only 50 minutes.  I let the kids group themselves and then choreograph their own part of our fraction song.  I gave them only ten minutes to make props.  It was the coldest day of the year so far (and the windiest).  But, in only 50 minutes they designed, rehearsed, and even preformed their rendition of “The Fraction Song” for me AND the 2nd and 3rd grade students at our school.  I was as blown away as many of their signs on this windy day!  I’m working on the iMovie and will post it when finished!  Until then, here is the YouTube of my creative, adorable, sweet, and enthusiastic students.  I love 6th graders.

Here is the iMovie…

The Fraction Song

Equivalent fractions each will be!

Denominators stay the same,

Simplify and Multiply,

Simplify and Multiply,

Times the bottom and the top,

It’s so fun that you can’t stop!

Dividing fractions is so fun,

Keep, Change, Flip the second one.

Simplify and Multiply,

Simplify and Multiply!

The iMovie is coming!

2. LOVE it!! Any chance you could share the lyrics? I teach fifth grade and we’re just starting adding/subtracting with unlike denominators. I’m looking to kick it up a notch!!

3. Hey Bill, Yes! And, I have the iMovie here too with the lyrics. 🙂 Julie
