Hey Everyone,

This resource was designed with backward planning in mind. It takes the student on a journey from being introduced to fractions to adding and subtracting unlike denominators.

It is mixed with teacher interaction, students working together, and independent work.

If you spend 90 minutes a class you could get 6-8 days of material here. Depending on where your students are and how fast you teach.

If you spend 50 minutes a day you could get close to 10-11 days of material.

Daily lesson plan. This guide walks you through what the day looks like. This is where I explain how to use the student handouts and when I introduce them.

Feel free to use as is or take bits and pieces to enhance your style.

Student handout page. These are in order and align with the lesson plans. Every handout has an answer key.

Pre and post test these tests were designed before any lesson was written. I took these two tests that I created and developed the entire six days around them. Moving students from estimating fractions to adding and subtracting unlike denominators.

Academic Vocabulary This is a complete unit on the vocabulary they will see throughout the unit. It has two separate ways of taking notes, flash cards they create, and a check for understanding test.

Teaching PowerPoints. One is the one I use in teaching throughout the lesson and the other is something I created for discovering LCM.

One week of homework or bell warmers this is used for me to see where the students are and who needs reinforces as the unit progresses.
