PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Do you need a way to have your students understand fractions and equivalent fraction concepts?

This Common Core Aligned Lapbook should help.

4th Grade Common Core Standards Addressed:

4.NF.1- Explain why a fraction a/b is equivalent to a fraction nxa/nxb by using visual fraction models. Use this principle to recognized and generate equivalent fractions.
4.NF.2- Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators.

3rd Grade Common Core Standards Addressed:
3.NF.1
3.NF.2
3.NF.3

Students create flapbooks to insert into a Lapbook. However, the flapbooks can also be inserted into a notebook.

Concepts included in lapbook:

Definition flapbook includes:
fraction, numerator, denominator, benchmark fraction
Tips for Understanding Equivalent Fractions booklet includes descriptions and examples of the following terms:
using fraction models, using number lines, using benchmark fractions, multiplying and dividing to create equivalent fractions and then a "Try It" page.
Number Line Flipbook includes:
fraction strip models and a number line showing equivalent fractions
Understanding Types of Fractions flapbook includes:
equivalent fractions, simplest form, improper fractions and mixed numbers.

In the center there is a "Fraction Action Man" where students use pattern blocks to determine the fractional representation of each pattern block. For example, the yellow hexagon used in the figure represents 6/17 of the entire shape. After determining the fractional representation of each pattern block, students may decorate "Fraction Action Man".

Lots of great review and room for students to create their own examples.

For those of you who have copy limitations, I created an extra page for you to just print out the "tips for understanding" concepts and the students can create their own flapbooks using sentence strips.

Hope you enjoy this product!

If you have any questions, please email me:

Thanks!

On  January 14, 2013,  Buyer asked:
I don't exactly understand the full meaning of a "lapbook" can you explain it to me please?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  January 14, 2013Fun in Room 4B answered:
Check out my blog post using Poetry and Figurative Language Lapbook.

http://funin4b.blogspot.com/2012/03/poetry-and-figurative-language-lapbook.html

However, I don't always use all of the flipbooks and foldables in my lapbooks to make a "lapbook". I usually end up using them in my students' notebooks.

Hope this helps. You can also email me at funinroom4b@gmail.com

Thanks,
