CRITICAL THINKING: Christmas Vocabulary Fractions
Exercise your students’ critical thinking
through CHRISTMAS VOCABULARY FRACTIONS
. The challenge is to create Christmas terminology using fractional parts of words. This product is CCSS aligned for grades 3 and 4. However, it will be applicable to high performing second graders, as well. Fifth graders, too, will enjoy the challenge.
The task gradually increases in difficulty, transitioning from 2 part clues with pictures and words to 4 part clues with just pictures. Students must deduce the correct word and its spelling. Solving equivalent fractions provides even more challenge. I strongly advise solving several of these tasks together, “thinking out loud” to model the problem solving required.
20 VOCABULARY FRACTIONS task cards
are included in this product. Also provided are labels for your center folder, a recording sheet master, and an answer key.
