There are seven short word problems involving fractions in this collection. Each section of these worksheets is designed to engage and stimulate third and fourth graders for about 10 minutes. However these fictional stories can also entertain younger children.
I have purposely included worksheets requiring active participation of the whole class. Through these fictional stories, I hope to demonstrate that real life math comes in many forms; poems, stories, elections, animals, dentition, food, walking, etc and sometimes may require group efforts. There is no limit to the possibilities in finding math in our everyday lives. I have included examples in the answer sheets, however these answers will change with your class size.
Happy practicing! Let me know what you need and I will gladly try to create it. TOU: Purchase/download of this product allows the purchaser to make copies for personal classroom use only.
