I have had SO many requests for fraction resources to be bundled together to help teachers save money--and I do have many bundles in my store. I do have a big fraction bundle with 10 resources--but some people just want to start a little smaller. This is a set of two of my most popular fraction resources!

PLEASE make sure that you don't already own one of the two resources before purchasing!

Downloading the preview will give you the preview of each of the two resources so you can see what you get--as well as a brief document explaining why I paired the two together.

This “Teaching Tandem” is full of hands on ways to make key fraction concepts more concrete for students. Several of my fraction resources are available in my other fraction bundle—but these two are not. The first is a set of 5 concept sorts that really help you see where your students’ misconceptions are. All directions (including photos) are included.

The second resource is a tiered activity that helps students see that mixed numbers can be broken up (“decomposed”) into two smaller fractions. This helps students internalize basic addition and subtraction with fractions as well as work with estimation and reasoning. These are two of my best sellers, now available together at a reduced price. Enjoy!

The two included resources are:

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Add and subtract mixed numbers with like denominators, e.g., by replacing each mixed number with an equivalent fraction, and/or by using properties of operations and the relationship between addition and subtraction.
Decompose a fraction into a sum of fractions with the same denominator in more than one way, recording each decomposition by an equation. Justify decompositions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model. Examples: 3/8 = 1/8 + 1/8 + 1/8; 3/8 = 1/8 + 2/8; 2 1/8 = 1 + 1 + 1/8 = 8/8 + 8/8 + 1/8.
Understand addition and subtraction of fractions as joining and separating parts referring to the same whole.
Understand a fraction 𝘢/𝘣 with 𝘢 > 1 as a sum of fractions 1/𝘣.
Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators, e.g., by creating common denominators or numerators, or by comparing to a benchmark fraction such as 1/2. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
