Hands-On Fraction Activities!

These Common Core Aligned fraction activities are great for differentiated practice! They will engage and challenge your students who will beg for more! Really! So, I added editable task cards. You and your students can make more of your own!

For a fabulous NO PREP center, just print the included task cards and add some pattern blocks. Done! To have more challenges and raise the level of thinking even higher, use the editable cards to have students create for each other. Or, make your own task cards that target just the fractions your students are struggling with.

The tasks make a wonderful hands-on work station using the proportional relationships between Pattern Blocks to build and challenge knowledge.

✎ Each task allows for individual creativity which is the motivation students need to enjoy, instead of dread, fractions.

★After completing the center activities, even my struggling math students:★

• Understood equivalent and improper fractions, mixed numbers
• Could name equivalent fractions between halves, thirds, and sixths.
• Could visualize adding and subtracting halves, thirds, and sixths
• Could visualize common denominators
• Could add and subtract halves, thirds, and sixths

When I directly taught these same concepts, students already had background knowledge that helped them comprehend at a much deeper level! Each activity may be completed in multiple ways for differentiation.

Here's What's Included:

• 20 different center activities

• editable activities

• Convince Me page for justifying answers

• student work samples

• an assessment with an answer key for use after students have done the centers.

Even More!

• The activities are aligned with Common Core Standards 3.NF.1, 4.NF.1, 4.NF.2, 4.NF.3, and 5.NF.1
• The only materials necessary are: center activities, Pattern Blocks, math journal, and pencil.
• Students choose an activity and complete the required design in at least one way.
• They trace their design in their math journal or onto the included triangle paper.
• Students write a “convince me” statement that explains how their design matches the challenge activity.
• You can have students color the design to match the Pattern Blocks used

These all new challenges use the same format as Fraction Center Task Cards (16 challenges and not editable). There are 20 challenges in this set plus editable tasks are included!

Just print, laminate or use sheet protectors, and use year after year!
