Need a review, game, or just extra practice for adding fractions and mixed numbers? You've found it!
This set of 12 word problems focuses on adding fractions and mixed numbers within real-world contexts. Each of the word problems is aligned to meet the following Common Core State Standards:
5.NF.1 Add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators
5.NF.2 Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions referring to the same whole, including cases of unlike denominators, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equation to represent the problem.
1) Move and Review!
-Print each word problem as a full page and slide into page protectors. Hang problems around the room and have kids move around to answer questions. *Once they solve three or four problems, you can check their answers with the answer key and then send them back to solve more!
2) Game Center:
If you teach through math rotations or centers, you can print multiple problems to a page to turn into flash cards. Write the answers on the backs of each problem. Have students solve and then flip to the back to check their answers! (*Hint – you may even want to show your work on the back so that they can check for mistakes when needed.)
*You can pair this game with “Bean War” – a free resource in my TpT store. Each time students answer correctly they get to add a bean or classroom manipulative to their board.
