The Math Spot


Your students' ability to compare fractions will grow exponentially as students work through a five day unit of small group lessons. These lessons are designed to move your students from confused to confident when it comes to comparing fractions with both like and unlike denominators.

 This math intervention resource includes:

✎ A Pre-Assessment

✎ 5 Days of Detailed Lessons

✎ Hands-on Practice activities and math centers that can be used for weeks to come

✎ Daily Progress Monitoring

✎ A Post-Assessment  

Third-grade fraction comparison understanding is improved through research-based strategies by which students begin with concrete models, move to drawings and finally mentally compare fractions with either the same numerator or the same denominator. 

I am confident that this resource will improve your third grader's ability to compare fractions mentally!
