These are guided notes to help you teach the concept of basic fractions. You can reduce them in size, and students can glue them into their math journals to use and refer back to when they are trying to complete independent assignments such as classwork or homework. They are also excellent to use for differentiation in the classroom. These are great for parents so that they are able to see the language we are using and the strategies that we are teaching at school! All journal notes are aligned with common core standards, and would also make a great anchor chart for your classroom!
