PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Monster Fractions includes 40+ pages of four fraction math centers aligned to the Common Core Standards for 4th and 5th grade. The centers can also be used for review for 6th grade or for challenging advanced learners in 3rd grade. The centers included are:

1. "Finding Freaky Equivalent Fractions"-Students use the task cards to find the number they must multiply the numerator and denominator by to complete the equivalent fraction. Student directions and an answer key to check answers are included.

2. "Monster Half Smack"-Students play a game where they place cards with fractions greater than or less than 1/2 on a board. When a fraction card is flipped that is equal to 1/2, the first player to smack the card keeps it. Student directions and a visual fraction bar model are included for students to check their answers.

3. "Monster Matchmaker"-Students play the memory game or go fish with the fraction cards that have a numerical fraction listed with a visual model. Students must match fractions that are equivalent. Student directions and a visual fraction bar model are included for students to check their answers.

4. "Monster Word Problems"-Students use the task cards to solve word problems with fractions. Cards have word problems that involve adding and subtracting fractions with like denominators, multiplying a fraction by a whole number, and adding and subtracting fractions with unlike denominators. Each task card has a separate answer key with the equation and method of solving the problem modeled. Directions and student sheet to record answers and work are also provided.

The CCSS standards addressed in Monster Fraction Centers are:

CCSS.Math.Content.4.NF.A.1, Equivalent Fractions
CCSS.Math.Content.4.NF.A.2, Comparing Fractions
CCSS.Math.Content.4.NF.B.4d, Word Problems with addition and subtraction of fractions with like denominators
CCSS.Math.Content.4.NF.B.4c, Word Problems with multiplication of a fraction and whole number
CCSS.Math.Content.5.NF.A.1, Add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators
CCSS.Math.Content.5.NF.A.2, Word Problems with addition and subtraction of fractions with unlike denominators

I love this pack! The games are as promised - fun AND well suited for older elementary students. I love that there is a reference page provided to support students as they play each game. I think I will probably print extra copies of them to laminate and let my kids keep in their binders. great bundle!

Hey Holly...this is Meg over at Fourth Grade Studio! You really don't need to send me anything--but if you DID want to share your fraction set, I'd show it off to my team and maybe you could get a sale out of it! :) dmamec@new.rr.com

I want to send you something, Meg! That is the point of the RACK:) I know how you feel though because the blogging world has been so kind to me and it is tough to not feel guilty when someone just gives you their hard work. I will be sending the fraction centers in a minute:) UPDATE: I tried sending them and it stated that the message failed because your inbox was over quota. Is there another email I can send to?
