 construction paper, markers, ruler, manipulatives, paper, and pencil Smart board
 Students will complete bell ringer problem
 Teacher will demonstrate how to create fraction bars. Teacher will present and demonstrate lesson: definition of proper and improper fractions and mixed numbers. Teacher will demonstrate how to simply fractions by writing in lowest term. Students will simply fractions by writing in lowest terms.
 Students will create fraction bars as demonstrated by the teacher. Students will use created fraction bars (manipulatives) to show fractions as a part of a whole. Students will demonstrate understanding by defining a proper and improper fractions. Students will simply fractions by writing in lowest terms. Teacher will have students reflect by say and asked the following: Look over the solution. Does it seem probable? Did you answer the question? Are you sure? Did you answer using the language in the question?
 Student centered instruction/small group/pairing struggling students with a partner/extended time. Enrichment: Have students conduct Internet or library research and/or write a paragraph based on any type of mathematics related personal experience. Follow-up lesson´┐Ż.
