Product Description
Adding and Subtracting Fractions with Unlike Denominators

A few years ago when I first started teaching adding and subtracting fractions with unlike denominators to my fifth graders, I quickly realized that they needed some concrete step-by-step directions. They also needed a way to organize their work. I racked my brain for a little while before coming up with this graphic organizer. My students loved it!

When we moved to multiplying and dividing fractions, they never again confused the steps. They simply responded with, “adding and subtracting – we use 4-square!”

Teachers love it as well! All of the teachers on my grade level are successfully using this method with their students.

This bundle includes:

1. PowerPoint presentation that you can use to teach students this lesson. You can also print off the slides and have students glue them into their interactive notebooks.

2. Adding and Subtracting Fractions Using Models Practice Sheet

3. TWO worksheets (with answer keys) that students can use to practice adding and subtracting fractions using "four-square." You can even use one of them as a quiz grade!

ALSO AVAILABLE: Adding and Subtracting MIXED NUMBERS Using the Four-Square Method
