  • Frustrated that your students don’t retain fraction concepts? Do they make common errors? Singapore teaches us the importance of the consolidation phase of learning—playing games! When students play, they move learning into long-term memory. We’ll use dice, cards, and commonly found materials to reinforce concepts that align to the Common Core State Standards.
