Product Description
Looking for a simple game that will help your students practice a variety of skills for fractions? Number Line Long Jump contains SEVEN skills in one game! This game has easy to learn rules, and kids can play several rounds (for repeated practice) in a short period of time. Best of all, differentiation is as easy as adding/removing cards. Simply introduce the game with the first set of cards after a lesson on fraction number lines. As you teach new fraction concepts you can differentiate your instruction by assigning new card sets to students who are ready, then later on in the year mix the cards together for a review of several fraction and decimal concepts. Kids can practice the following concepts:

★ Identify fractions on a number line. Students practice locating tenths on a number line that contains tenths.
★ Recognize benchmark fractions (one half). Mix these cards in with the Game 1 cards to help students practice finding the halfway mark; don't play this game on its own.
★ Identify equivalent fractions (fifths and tenths). Students need to change fifths to the equivalent tenth.
★ Identify equivalent fractions (tenths and twentieths). Students need to recognize that a twentieth is half of a tenth on a number line.
★ Change decimals to fractions (tenths to tenths)
★ Change decimals to fractions (hundredths to tenths)
★ Change decimals to fractions (more hundredths to tenths)

Preparation: Cut out the cards and sort according to levels (see icon codes for each game). Cut out the page of 3 tenths strips and tape them together in a single line (numbers are repeated purposely for a smoother overlap).

Storage: Keep each set of cards in a separate envelope and store in a file folder. I like to glue the directions into the file folder as well as the tenths number line (fold the number line for storage).
