If pacing is a challenge, consider the following modifications and omissions.
Omit Lesson 3. Lesson 3’s objective is similar to Lesson 2’s. The difference is a shift from concrete to pictorial. Students will have exposure to extensive pictorial practice throughout the module.
Omit Lesson 4. Although Lesson 4 is an exploratory lesson that affords students the opportunity to synthesize their learning, no new material is presented.
Consolidate Lessons 10 and 11, both of which have nearly identical objectives and provide practice comparing unit fractions pictorially. Within the lesson that results, incorporate a variety of models into practice.
Omit Lesson 13. Lesson 13 provides practice with concepts and skills taught in the three preceding lessons. Although this lesson deepens practice, no new material is presented.
Omit Lesson 19. Lesson 19, designated as an optional lesson in the teaching sequence, provides practice with concepts and skills taught in the five preceding lessons.
Omit Lesson 20, an equivalent fractions lesson. The seven subsequent lessons in Topic E provide practice that is more targeted toward specific understandings about equivalent fractions.
Consider omitting Lesson 25 since its content is embedded into the work of prior lessons. Ensure that students have practiced counting and labeling whole number fractions as part of their work with fractions on the number line.
