Math Project #4 Fractional Me

fractional me 2This week, I started teaching fractions. My students had fun as their creativity flow on their Fractional Me project (1 day project approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour). They created portraits of themselves out of small squares (post-it note or 3×3 cut-outs). They were responsible for determining the fractional amounts of each color. This is a great way to integrate Art and Values, and for the students to remember that fractions is part of a whole on a personal level.

I also encourage my students to love their unique beauty and charm. I tell them that they must not let anyone define who they are, because they are the ones who know themselves best. During middle school years, students tend to seek approval and validation from others especially among their peers. They hear negative things people say about them, and of course, it hurts when someone tries to spread gossips. I tell my students to stand strong and embrace their unique beauty and charm. It doesn’t matter what others think about you but what really matters is how you see yourself. You know who you are so brush it off and stay positive. Let your beauty shine from the inside out.
