Fractions -Looking for a way to help your students learn the important concept of fractions? This lapbook containing many different fold-its is designed to do just that. Topics covered in this lapbook include:
-What is a fraction definition? What is a numerator and denominator?
-A shutterfold showing a visual representation of one whole, one half,one third, one fourth, one sixth, and one eighth. (All fractions covered in the grade 3 common core standards)
-An equivalent fractions flip book showing circle equivalents for one, one half, one third, and one fourth
-A comparing fractions flip book which explains how to compare fractions when they have the same numerator, same denominator, and using benchmarks
-A chart showing fraction bars to help students compare fractions
-A mini book showing how to place a fraction on a number line
-Two pockets, one for holding fraction bar cards and the other for holding fraction circle cards
-Cards with pictures of fraction pizzas, chocolate bars and fraction strips
-Two math mats to use along with the fold-its. One is a larger number line for students to practice placing fractions on a number line and the other is for comparing whether two fractions are smaller or larger than one half
These fold-its could also be used in an interactive math notebook if you did not wish to make the lapbook.
What I like about the lapbook for my students is that once they are made they act as a reference tool for students to use at their desk. It is also a great tool to use during math workshop. Students can use the cards to order, compare or show equivalent fractions.
**This product also includes sheets which contain the word "quarters" for those teachers who prefer quarters instead of "fourths"
