Teach all of your students in grade 5 to add and subtract fractions with this unit full of complete lesson plans and active engagement activities! This resource will help you teach your students about adding and subtracting fractions with unlike denominators. Students will use models to construct their understanding of adding or subtracting amounts that are not the same size. They will use fraction strips, fraction circles, area models, and number lines to add and subtract fractions.

Each TEK standard-- 5.3A 5.3H 5.3K 5.4F -- is broken down into Learning Targets to make it easier to track student progress and make working in a PLC easier. There are 5 skills in this unit! Each learning target contains intervention and enrichment skills. Both student and teacher data sheets are included to track growth and make small group instruction easier.

This Resource Includes:

  • Daily objectives, learning targets, and materials.
  • Whole class teaching activities with guided math activities.
  • Closure with an exit ticket and answer key for most days.
  • Learning targets can be used to assign intervention and enrichment skills.
  • Whole Class Teaching: Mini Lessons, Connection, Teaching Point, Active Engagement, Link to Ongoing Learning, Games, Math Huddle
  • Games and Engagement Activities: Minute to Win It 5.3A, Mirror- 5.3H, SCOOT- 5.3H Roll a Number 5.3H, Mystery Challenge- 5.3H, SCOOT- 5.3K, Roll for Luck- 5.4F
  • Small Group Instruction: 14 problem types, fill-in-the-blank for differentiation

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
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, 𝘢/𝘣 + 𝘤/𝘥 = (𝘢𝘥 + 𝘣𝘤)/𝘣𝘥.)
