Fraction Word Problems contains teaching slides designed to facilitate student thinking about fraction concepts. This set of 60+ slides poses though provoking questions about fraction concepts. Students use the visual models to justify their thinking. Encourage students to record their thinking in math journals and share their thinking with their peers such as (think-pair-share).
This resource also includes two daily fraction printables which provide students with practice shading a circle, square, and rectangle to represent a given fraction. Because their is a rectangle directly about the number line on the daily printable, students are able to make connections between fractions of a rectangle and fractions on a number line.
Students will use the printables to write a given fraction in word form, compare it to one-half, model an equivalent fraction, and represent the fraction as a set.
