Game Steps and Tips:
1. This game is great for identifying and reviewing fractional parts.
2. I explain that this activity not only involves fractional parts practice, but also excellent listening skills.
3. Tell your students that they will read the information on the card, "I have (fraction)..." and ask the question, "Who has (fraction)?"
4. To make it easier to manage in the event a student is not paying attention and misses the fraction on his/her card, I have put letters on the cards to provide an order to the teacher. If the game stops because someone missed the fraction/direction on the card, the teacher can walk over to the student who last participated and see what letter card the game left off.
If for example, it was card G, then the teacher might say, "Everyone look at your card...who has card H?" That will get the game back on track.
5. The fractions game consists of 32 cards. If you have less than 32 students, some students will receive two cards. Remind the students to be listening for both fractional cards.
6. When the game returns to Card A, the first person, the game is over.
7. To keep the cards in good condition for each school year, laminate the cards.
Enjoy and have fun with your little mathematicians!
