Subtracting fractions with unlike denominators is a multi-step process. Begin with models and visuals so that students understand that smaller denominators are bigger in size. Next, teach your child multiple problem-solving strategies, including converting to improper fractions, the rectangular fraction model, and finally, the standard algorithm.

Revision

Revision

Many children resist revision, feeling that they are "done," or because they are attached to their first draft and don't want to make changes. Instead of revising student work, practice with sample texts, reviewing specific skills like correcting run-on sentences. Once your child is comfortable with the revision process, they will be ready to try it on their own or on their peers' writing.
