This set of 44 FRACTION CARDS comprises
- FRACTION CARDS - tenths, fifths and halves
- DECIMAL CARDS
- GRID PICTURE CARDS
- DIRECTIONS for GAMES: FRACTION FAMILIES and DONKEY
You can use these cards in many ways. They are a great way to develop fraction concepts. I use them in INTERVENTION sessions and the multi sensory aspect of handling the card at the same time as hearing the name and seeing the visual, helps my students process the abstract nature of tenths. Matching the different sets introduces the concept of equivalence in the same way.
Choose the card format to complement the skills you are building and have students order them from smallest to largest or match 2 cards (picture to decimal or picture to fraction, or demonstrate equivalence). The games of CONCENTRATION and SNAP work well at this level. There are lots of great ideas you can adapt to your learners' needs.
My students enjoy both FRACTION FAMILIES and DONKEY and while there is more fun in DONKEY, there is more learning opportunities for CONSOLIDATION in FRACTION FAMILIES. You could add either to a Maths Centre. One of my students took a set of cards home and played FRACTION FAMILIES with her own family over the course of a week. When she brought them back to me she had mastered the concept of tenths as well as equivalent fractions.
These cards are well worth laminating and boxing. I have used mine over and over again. They are well worth the initial investment in setting up. Follow them up with my FRACTION CARDS - Hundredths. I have purposely made the fractions different colours so your kids won't confuse the sets. Differentiate by providing both sets for independent consolidation time.
I love creating games for my students to play to help them learn. You can find more ideas like this in my store: www.teacherspayteachers/Store/learning-solutions
