This file contains eight pre-made fraction spinners and two blank sheets for you to customize. There are five versions of recording sheets. Students use a pencil and a paper clip to spin a fraction, then use one of the recording sheets to model their fraction as part of a circle and/or rectangle or on a number line. There is also a recording sheet for students to practice fraction addition problems.
The recording sheets can also be used for a variety of other math centers and activities. For example, students can use dominoes, fraction cards or roll dice to create their fractions.
Laminate the spinners and recording sheets or slip inside a paper protector to use over and over again in your math centers!
Common Core Standards:
*3.NF.1 Understand a fraction 1/b as the quantity formed by 1 part when a whole is partitioned into b equal parts; understand a fraction a/b as the quantity formed by a parts of size 1/b.
*3.NF.2 Understand a fraction as a number on the number line; represent fractions on a number line diagram.
*3.NF.2a Represent a fraction 1/b on a number line diagram by defining the interval from 0 to 1 as the whole and partitioning it into b equal parts. Recognize that each part has size 1/b and that the endpoint of the part based at 0 locates the number 1/b on the number line.
*3.NF.2b Represent a fraction a/b on a number line diagram by marking off a lengths 1/b from 0. Recognize that the resulting interval has size a/b and that its endpoint locates the number a/b on the number line.
