Adding and subtracting fractions can be fun when your students have these holiday-themed task cards to work with! Use these printable math task cards at independent centers, as an Interwrite/Smartboard assessment activity, or in small groups to focus instruction on these concepts:
* Adding and subtracting fractions with like denominators
* Adding and subtracting fractions with unlike denominators
* Adding and subtracting mixed numbers
These word problems are aligned with Common Core standards 4.NF.B.3c, 4.NF.B.3d; 5.NF.A.1, 5.NF.A.2.
Though adding and subtracting fractions is not a standard at 6th grade, I have used these with my sixth graders for review and practice. With the standards just being implemented this year and last, there will clearly be gaps from previous years and I have found the review of these concepts to be immensely helpful.

Printing these cards in landscape format (if your printer does not default to this) will provide a better size card. Hope the holiday theme makes the work a little easier!
