Student Made Fraction Book: Guided Math Lessons

Here is a great sample of writing about fractions in story form.  I really like the way they set it up as an individualized student book.  This really helps students to discuss fractions as well as make connections to real life.  I would discuss this in small guided math groups.  You could follow this template for whatever city you live in.  Depaul has set such an excellent example with this series of math graphic organizers.
