Here’s a quick, easy and super-fun
way to practice fraction vocabulary
, and help students wrap their head around this math concept.
I run the flip ups off on red, yellow & green construction paper then give my kiddos a choice.
Students fold their paper in half (horizontally) so that the words are on the top, then write their name in the corner.
I have my students write the number 1, and fractions 1/2 & 1/4
on the appropriate pictures, that are underneath the flaps.
I’ve included full color patterns for all 3 apple color options
so that you can easily make a sample to share, as well as a black & white template
for your kiddos to color, cut
There’s also a real apple photograph
version as well.
When everyone is done, play “Show Me The Apple!”
as a whole group assessment game
“Show me the fourth
of an apple.”
“Show me the whole
“Show me a quarter
of the apple.”
“Show me half
Remind, and encourage students to explain fractions to their family using their “fraction action flip up.”
This craftivity is included in my jumbo Apple Fraction Action Packet.
Buy the bundle and get a lot, while you save a bunch.
However, I had a request
for just this "Flippin' over Fractions" craft, so here it is. I'm always happy to pull just the craft activities out of the jumbo packets and sell them separately.
