The Parent/Teacher Guide has lessons for a student made booklet to learn with concrete models what a fraction is, how to read and write fraction notation. Lessons covered include numerators greater than one, whole numbers as fractions, recording fractions, pattern block games, changing wholes, and number lines. There is a Pre-Assessment and a Post-Assessment with an in depth guide.
Manipulatives used are pattern blocks, Prism Fractions Paper Circles (a free download), Prism Fractions Paper Squares (a free download), 51 piece plastic set of Fractions Circles (purchased at my TpT store) or any commercial set of Fraction Circles.
A constructivist approach in which students learn through hands-on exploration, discovery, inventions, and the creation of models.
The Parent/Teacher Guide has instructions on how to teach the lessons, sample dialogues, games, and the Answer Key. The Student Workbook has worksheets and practice pages. We highly recommended that you order both for a complete package.
