Day # | Group 1 (Needs instruction on 4.NF.1 and 4.NF.2) | Group 2 (Does not exist at the beginning of the unit, but is created if needed for students in group 1 who need to speed up or group 3 who need to slow down.) | Group 3 (Does not need instruction for 4.NF.1, but does for 4.NF.2) | Group 4 (Needs instruction on neither 4.NF.1 nor 4.NF.2) |

Day 1 | 4.NF.1 Lesson 1: Teach finding equivalents visually, using manipulatives and pictures. | Students work independently on constructed response tasks from the pathway, moving to the extension activity when finished (if time permits). | ||

Day 2 | 4.NF.1 Lesson 2: Teach finding equivalents by multiplying/dividing the numerator and denominator by the same number. | Just a few students from the 4.NF.1 group are ready to move on. They play math games reviewing skills and/or work on Khan Academy or other resources you have available for them. | ||

Day 3 | 4.NF.1 Lesson 2: Reteach | A large enough number of students are ready to move on to justify another group. 4.NF.1 Lesson 3: Teach students to identify simplest form and reduce a fraction to simplest form. | 4.NF.2 Lesson 1: Teach students to visually compare fractions to ½ using manipulatives and pictures. | Students work independently on constructed response tasks from the pathway, moving to the extension activity when finished (if time permits). |

Day 4 | 4.NF.1 Lesson 3: Teach students to identify simplest form and reduce a fraction to simplest form. | 4.NF.1 Lesson 3: Reteach (Students who show mastery work on review games or Khan Academy.) | 4.NF.2 Lesson 2: Teach students to compare fractions to ½ by creating equivalent fractions, checking their work with manipulatives and pictures. | Students work independently on constructed response tasks from the pathway, moving to the extension activity when finished (if time permits). |

Day 5 | 4.NF.1 Lesson 3: Reteach (Students who show mastery work on review games or Khan Academy.) | 4.NF.1 Constructed Response Tasks | 4.NF.2 Lesson 3: Teach students to compare fractions by creating equivalent fractions and using the butterfly method as a shortcut. | |

Day 6 | 4.NF.1 Constructed Response Tasks | (Anyone not finished with the constructed response tasks can move to group 1) 4.NF.2 Lesson 1: Teach students to visually compare fractions to ½ using manipulatives and pictures. | 4.NF.2 Constructed Response Tasks | |

Day 7 | 4.NF.1 Constructed Response Tasks | 4.NF.2 Lesson 2: Teach students to compare fractions to ½ by creating equivalent fractions, checking their work with manipulatives and pictures. | 4.NF.2 Constructed Response Tasks/Extension Activity | |

Day 8 | 4.NF.2 Lesson 1: Teach students to visually compare fractions to ½ using manipulatives and pictures. | 4.NF.2 Lesson 3: Teach students to compare fractions by creating equivalent fractions and using the butterfly method as a shortcut. | Begin the next pathway. | |

Day 9 | 4.NF.2 Lesson 2: Teach students to compare fractions to ½ by creating equivalent fractions, checking their work with manipulatives and pictures. | 4.NF.2 Lesson 3: Reteach | Continue on the next pathway. | |

Day 10 | 4.NF.2 Lesson 2: Reteach | 4.NF.2 Constructed Response Tasks | Continue on the next pathway. | |

Day 11 | 4.NF.2 Lesson 3: Teach students to compare fractions by creating equivalent fractions and using the butterfly method as a shortcut. | 4.NF.2 Constructed Response Tasks/Extension Activity | Continue on the next pathway. | |

Day 12 | 4.NF.2 Lesson 3: Reteach | Begin the next pathway. | Continue on the next pathway. | |

Day 13 | 4.NF.2 Constructed Response Tasks | Continue on the next pathway. | Continue on the next pathway. | |

Day 14 | 4.NF.2 Constructed Response Tasks | Continue on the next pathway. | Continue on the next pathway. | |

Day 15 | Begin the next pathway | Continue on the next pathway. | Continue on the next pathway. |
