**Today was yet another excellent day of learning! Students had their minds blown when they saw how amazing and useful it is to use fraction strips to compare fractions with benchmarks. They used the 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, and 1 marks to compare different fractions. Using the paper fraction strips and the digital ones helped the entire class visualize fraction and their proportions. #FractionsStripsAreLit**
