Do your students need practice adding fractions and showing mathematical thinking? This resource gives students the opportunity to practice adding fractions and to show what they know. Differentiated graphic organizers help students be successful and help you see what they can do!

Students "show their stuff" by using a Frayer diagram graphic organizer. With over 100 different equations (one on each card), students can choose the problem they want to solve or you can choose for them. Differentiation is easy this way!

This resource can be used in a math center, in small groups or for independent work. This resource meets 4th and 5th grade standards, but would also be great for a 6th grade review.

This product includes:

  • 117 cards with fraction addition equations
  • Directions for use in a center
  • 5 different Frayer diagram graphic organizers
  • Partner practice options
  • Fraction cards for partner practice
  • Visual models and tools for adding fractions

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 equations to represent the problem. Use benchmark fractions and number sense of fractions to estimate mentally and assess the reasonableness of answers. For example, recognize an incorrect result 2/5 + 1/2 = 3/7, by observing that 3/7 < 1/2.
Add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators (including mixed numbers) by replacing given fractions with equivalent fractions in such a way as to produce an equivalent sum or difference of fractions with like denominators. For example, 2/3 + 5/4 = 8/12 + 15/12 = 23/12. (In general, 𝘒/𝘣 + 𝘀/π˜₯ = (𝘒π˜₯ + 𝘣𝘀)/𝘣π˜₯.)
Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions referring to the same whole and having like denominators, e.g., by using visual fraction models and equations to represent the problem.
Add and subtract mixed numbers with like denominators, e.g., by replacing each mixed number with an equivalent fraction, and/or by using properties of operations and the relationship between addition and subtraction.
Understand addition and subtraction of fractions as joining and separating parts referring to the same whole.
