This program was designed for my 8 to 12 year olds who were one to two years below their peers in Fractions and Decimals (Australian Curriculum). The ACARA references are included for those teachers who need them.
It is designed as an Intervention Program and the format is such that you can hand it to a teaching assistant and they will be able to follow it with an individual or small group. It is perfect for homeschooling used this way as well. I use it in intervention and I have refined it over the last few years to a point where I think it will be useful to others.
The TASK CARDS are interspersed throughout the program as they reinforce the skills being learned at that point. You could, however, copy them as a separate element and put them in a Maths Centre. I recommend pairing this program with the game FRACTION FAMILIES COON CAN. I make this game for this target group and it goes down well. It is a card game which is based on the old card game of Coon Can. I have adapted it to four fraction families including percentage, decimals and ordinary fractions. The rules are simple and kids catch on to it fast. It's a great way to consolidate fractions and decimals. If your students are still consolidating basic fraction concepts then go for my DONKEY FRACTIONS games which are lots of fun and provide the pre-requisite skill levels. I have a bundle available if you need to cater to this diversity of skill targets.
This program also complements my FRACTION FUN books. These books go into more detail and would suit the student who needs more time and practice. My CONTENTS page included in the PREVIEW gives you some idea of how this all fits together. It should save you heaps of time.
First, administer the screener which is included in this product. Then go to the relevant skill sets not yet mastered. If the student/s need more practice for mastery, go to the FRACTION FUN BOOKS. You have all the resources you need to guarantee mastery of fraction concepts this way.
