Addition and Subtraction Fraction BINGO: The aim of this game is for players to practice adding or subtracting fractions by using pictorial and written fractions. The players each have a Blowfish Bingo board and select 16 fractions cards from either the addition or subtraction sheet, depending on which operation the players decide to use. The players place/glue their selected cards onto their board. A counter is placed on a square if the caller calls out the matching fraction answer. The player shouts "Bingo!” once four squares in a vertical, horizontal, or diagonal row has been covered. Variation: This game can also be continued until a player has their whole board covered.

SNAPper time: SNAPper time is a fun fraction game for reviewing the basic skill of identifying and matching fractions using pictorial and number representations. Players can play the game with a partner or in a group of three. To play the game, shuffle the cards and deal them out to the players. Each player turns over the top card from their face-down pile and places it on the center pile. If someone turns over a card that matches a card on the center pile, the first player to yell ‘SNAPPER TIME’ and places their hand on the pile of cards, will win the pile of cards. The winner adds them to the bottom of their face-down pile. Play continues until one player wins all of the cards. That player wins the game.
Shark Alert: A fun strategic fraction game for 2 players.
Use one counter and place it on START. Take turns moving the counter either 1, 2 or 3 spaces forward on to the fraction seashells. The player reads the fraction out loud to the opponent. The player who moves the counter on FINISH wins the game.
This game is perfect for a fraction math center.
