As a teacher, I know the many responsibilities you have and it can be very challenging to find the time needed for planning engaging and effective lessons. I hope this product saves you some much-needed time in your classroom.
I have been teaching grades 4-6 for the past 13 years. I love being able to have a large collection of activities and strategies available in my classroom so I can keep my students engaged and meet their varying needs. My activities are aligned with the Common Core and can easily be adapted to suit the needs of different grade levels and abilities.
SUGGESTIONS FOR HOW TO USE THIS PRODUCT:
This game can be used to practice and reinforce the skills of simplifying fractions and finding equivalent fractions. Students are engaged in the activity and the teacher can easily monitor students’ understanding of fractions in simplest form and equivalent fractions.
Students work with a partner and use dice to create fractions. They analyze the fractions they created to determine if the fraction is in simplest form. If it is not, they must simplify the fraction. Students then find a fraction equivalent to the fraction they created.
