After catching our snow, we measured it using varying sizes of cups (1/2, 1/4, and 1/8). What a great way to practice adding fractions with unlike denominators! / Después de atrapar la nieve, la medimos con varios tamaños de tazas (1/2, 1/4, and 1/8). ¡Que buena manera de practicar sumando  fracciones con denominadores diferentes! DSC03674
