This handout is a great tool for teaching students how to add fractions with common denominators. It also illustrates how fractions with like numerators and denominators become a whole number. It is color coded to assist with understanding.
It may be used as a handout, enlarged as a poster or sent home as a reference when doing homework. If you like this visual aid, please check out my additional fraction visual aids including changing a mixed number to an improper fraction, changing an improper fraction to a mixed number and adding fractions with different denominators. They are all available at my tpt store: Autism Teaching Tools.
