This 32 page download is a complete kit with black line masters and step by step photo directions for making a Fractions envelope book with your students. This kit includes visuals for basic fraction concepts (outlined below), along with two fraction games to practice comparing fractions. The printables were designed to fit inside a 10 x 13 inch envelope, but they will also fit in a standard size notebook if you prefer. Use them to complement your own fractions unit!
This fraction kit contains the following:
1. Step by step photo tutorial of how to make an envelope book
2. Photos for each part of the book, including a sample of each completed page
3. Fraction cover page
4. Fraction flip book with key vocabulary (numerator, denominator, bar model fraction, circle model fraction, fraction on a number line, fraction as part of a set)
5. Equivalent fraction insert (color and identify one-half equivalencies)
6. Benchmark fraction insert (compare fractions using the one-half benchmark model)
7. Decomposing fractions insert (color fraction models to show different ways to break apart the same fraction)
8. Composing fractions insert (color fractional parts to build fractions)
9. Add and subtract like fractions (color circle models to show addition and subtraction with common denominators)
10. "Comparispin" game (comparing and ordering fractions)
11. "Fraction WAR" board game, student direction sheet, and printable playing cards
12. Fraction strip chart for comparing fractions
Each student will need one 10 x 13 inch envelope to make the book. A pencil and paper clip will be needed for the spinner game. Real playing cards can be used for the "Fraction WAR" game, or printable cards are included.
Envelope books are an excellent way to keep students motivated and engaged in their learning. It is a nice way to keep everything in one place instead of sending home lots of loose papers. The complete envelope book makes a terrific reference tool or study guide for the unit test.
