This is a digit resource and intended to be used electronically. You may choose to use these any way you wish but in my classroom, I assign students one check for understanding each day through google classroom. After I have taught my whole group mini lesson on the topic, students have waiting for them the specific check for understanding assignment that we have just discussed. I have my kiddos participate in stations after my mini lesson and one of my stations is logging onto google classroom and completing whatever I have assigned them for that day. There are 5 check for understanding assignments included that are 9-15 questions each. Topics include; making equal parts, describing equal parts, making part of a set, problem solving, and describing parts of a set. This product is aligned to VA state standard 1.3 and addresses the following;
Understand that a fraction represents a part of a whole.
• Understand that fractional parts are equal shares of a whole.
• Understand that the fraction name (half, third, fourth) tells the number of equal parts in the whole.
The student will use problem solving, mathematical communication, mathematical reasoning, connections, and representations to
• Represent a whole to show it having two equal parts and identify one-half ( 1 2 ), and two halves ( 2 2).
• Represent a whole to show it having three equal parts and identify one-third ( 1 3 ), two-thirds ( 2 3 ) and three-thirds ( 3 3 ).
• Represent a whole to show it having four equal parts and identify one-fourth ( 1 4 ), two-fourths ( 2 4), three-fourths ( 3 4 ) and four-fourths ( 4 4 ).
• Identify and model halves, thirds, and fourths of a whole, using the set model (e.g., connecting cubes and counters), and region/area models (e.g., pie pieces, pattern blocks, geoboards, paper folding, and drawings).
• Name and write fractions represented by drawings or concrete materials for halves, thirds, and fourths.
• Represent a given fraction using concrete materials, pictures, and symbols for halves, thirds, and fourths. For example, write the symbol for one-fourth, and represent it with concrete materials and pictures.
