If you teach third grade math, this is jam-packed with everything you need to teach fractions and cover the Common Core standards! This set was designed so you would have a complete unit. The presentation is so easy to follow that a substitute could even teach new content if you were unexpectedly absent!
This is included in my Common Core Math: 3rd Grade Complete Set GROWING Bundle!
Also, this is a great way to help enrich your high-flying 2nd graders, or help reinforce concepts for 4th graders. The presentation could be self-guided when needed!
There are 5 main topics for this Fractions unit! (See notes below)
*(Fraction) Number Lines
*Equivalent Fractions (using visuals or number lines)
*Representing Whole Numbers (with fractions)
*Comparing Fractions (with like numerators or denominators)
**These focus on halves, thirds, fourths, sixths, and eighths and dictated by the CC standards**
Extra Practice for Representing Fractions and Equivalent Fractions
♦ List of standards that are covered (in assessment file)
♦ Planning guide to help you easily write lessons, matches up the presentation slides, assessments, vocabulary used, interactive notebook entries, and games/activities for each mini unit to help you quickly make plans.
♦A full in-depth presentation on all main and review topics listed above, this includes class practice questions and answers at the end of each section. (There is also a brief review on the phrasing and vocabulary of addition and subtraction in word problems.)
♦3 Assessments PER main topic. Each topic has a regular practice assessment, an "Application" assessment (word problems, using tables), and a "Test Prep" with multiple choice (all w/ keys!)
♦Extra assessment for representing fractions and equivalent fractions.
♦A complete unit study guide (w/ key) in the "style" of Common Core assessment
♦A complete unit test (w/key) in the "style" of Common Core assessment
♦Everything you need for a math interactive notebook including a notes/practice page and a foldable/activity for each topic. I have included a key and picture so you can see how I set up my notebook! There will be room for you to add any notes you want your students to include.
♦Vocabulary cards for your room covering: fraction, whole number, numerator, denominator, number line, equivalent, comparing, greater than, less than, equal sign
♦Six total games and/or activities that could be used as class/group activities or centers that cover all six topics: Fraction Representation Memory/Concentration, Equivalent Fraction/Whole Number Fractions "Old Man" Game (like Old Maid), "Play Clay" Fraction Tasks using clay (parts of a whole, equivalent fractions), "Cookin' Up Fractions Board Game for Review, "Clip It!" Fractions Review Task Cards, and Pattern Block Fractions Tasks (parts of a whole, equivalent fractions, and representing whole number)
♦Paper 6-sided dice if needed, as well as 1-6 cards if preferred over dice to use for games.
♦ Extra fraction bars and blank fraction models of halves, thirds, fourths, sixths, and eighths to use to reinforce concepts as needed.
♦Very detailed notes for you from me on how to use the set! This includes a "Unit Guide" correlating all of the mini-unit/topics in a chart for ease of use and planning!
***Please note that while these are in color, they print beautifully in black and white! I know many of us do not have color printers at school, so I wanted to make sure these worked both ways!
***These files are all in PDF format, to show the presentation full screen, go to "view", then "Full Screen Mode" and it will view just like a PowerPoint Presentation!
