This mini bundle of resources focuses on adding and subtracting fractions with unlike denominators, and was developed using the first portion of the 5th Grade Common Core State Standards.
- a 48-slide interactive PowerPoint
- a PowerPoint Worksheet Companion (so students can follow along as you progress through the PowerPoint with their own papers they can write on)
- 4 Exit Slips (matching the three sections of the PowerPoint)
- a CRAFTIVITY (including a word problem worksheet)
- 16 task cards
The PowerPoint is highly interactive. It begins with a quick review of what students have already learned about adding and subtracting fractions and simplifying fractions.
After the introduction section, there are four main sections in this PowerPoint:
1. Adding and Subtracting Fractions (with unlike denominators)
2. Adding Mixed Numbers (with unlike denominators & regrouping)
3. Subtracting Mixed Numbers (with unlike denominators & regrouping)
4. Fraction Word Problems (with adding & subtracting)
Each section contains many practice opportunities!
(The PowerPoint is also fully animated, so that answers do not appear on the screen until the teacher has clicked the mouse.)
The craftivity is an ideal follow-up activity. First, students complete a worksheet with 4 word problems. Then, students write the steps that must be followed when adding fractions and mixed numbers, and the steps that must be followed when subtracting fractions and mixed numbers. After those parts are finished, students begin the fun task of assembling the craftivity! The completed craftivities can be hung on a bulletin board or in the hallway- they create a fun display that shows passers-by exactly what you have been learning in your classroom.
16 task cards, PowerPoint companion study guides, and exit tickets are also included!
