This product includes the materials you need to introduce your students to fractions on a number line. It comes with interactive notebook pages, a guided math lesson and materials, a math station partner game, and a Kahoot to help students practice in a fun way!
I am thrilled to be hosting this amazing Fractions freebie from my friend and TpT colleague, Cassi Noack. We are partnering together to bring you this freebie along with the money-saving bundles below
If you like this freebie, then you will love these. HURRY!!! This collaboration is only available through February 2020! After that, it will be gone!

How I would utilize this product in my classroom:
A math workshop format uses a mini-lesson to teach students and then allows exploration and practice through centers, stations, and small group lessons. This resource includes the components to meet each of those needs.
- Mini-Lesson: Completing the interactive notebook pages can guide your mini-lesson. As you walk students through the notes, they will be introduced to the fraction skill. The pages are designed to fit in a composition-sized notebook, but will work in a spiral notebook, a binder, or even just stapled into a packet. Most of the fraction interactive notebook pages are a simple sheet with very little cutting required.
- Hands-on Guided Lesson: This guided lesson is perfect for your small group interventions. It includes the materials needed to help students develop a conceptual understanding of the skill. After you have introduced the concepts through your mini-lesson, you can reinforce your teaching through the use of hands-on manipulatives in a more personalized setting.
- Partner Games/Math Centers: This game is perfect to put in a math station. Not only is it fun, but it will also help your students practice the skills needed to master fractions on a number line. The game includes a student directional guide that tells them how to play it. There is also a teacher guide that helps you prepare the station. Games allow students to collaborate, develop social skills, build a love for learning, and master skills!
- Digital Practice Activities: This Kahoot activity helps engage students throughout the practice. You can gather data that will help you group your students for interventions.
How can I prep for the fraction workshop?
The teacher guides tell you exactly which pages to print, how to print them, and how to prepare for the lesson and game. While this product does have some prep work, the work will be an investment that has great dividends. Students will learn from hands-on-manipulatives and exploratory lesson components and will have so much fun playing the games that they will forget they are learning! Plus, these materials can be used over and over and for years to come!
Before you start the unit, take the time to prepare all the activities. Students can definitely help with the cutting! Some of the activities require lamination so that students can write or draw on them with dry-erase markers, however, plastic sleeves or strips of packing tape can often be used instead if lamination isn't available to you.
