Here are 2 interesting new releases on LD@School.

  1. Article: Teaching fractions: A few cautionary notes by Lucie DeBlois. From her conclusion: “in order for operations on fractions to have meaning, students must develop an understanding not only of the role of the numerator and the denominator, but of the relationships between the numerator, the denominator, and the unit of reference.”
  2. Video:  Mindfulness  practice to support the well-being of students with LDs – Feed all four. The description:  “This video provides an overview of the Feed All Four framework*, developed by Trillium Lakelands District School Board. The Feed All Four framework is based on improving the social and emotional development and self-regulation of students through mindfulness and positive self-perception. This framework is beneficial to students with learning disabilities because it provides them the necessary tools to deal with conflict and anxiety, helps them focus on the task at hand, and encourages them to advocate for themselves. It also encourages them to look at the positive aspects of themselves as opposed to the negative aspects. ” *Feed all four – the four are – Body, Mind, Emotions, Spirit.
