### PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Fractions on the Number Line is such a hard concept for students to grasp. In class, I make it easy for students by first presenting licorice laces to students. We then investigate how we could share equally 1 licorice lace among a few friends and how we could do the same thing with more than one licorice. We record our findings in our journals. I demonstrate the "0" by asking students: "Have I yet eaten licorice? Then it's "0": zero in my belly!". I tell the students to "imagine" that the line (representing the fraction on the number line) represents the amount of licorice lace. It "mimics" how the Item Specs have been written. It makes it very clear for the students and they understand really fast. This, combined with using centers and assessments that are rigorously aligned with the standard and that mimic the Item Specs are a sure way to ensure a deep understanding and an adequate test preparation. This product includes both; that is a center and an assessment.

Fraction on the Number Line includes 30 task cards aligned with standard and using questions similar to Item Specs (NF.1.2: Fractions on the number line) and one assessment (NF.1.2). Improper fractions, mixed fractions, fractions on the number line (0 to 1 and 0 to 2). Answer Keys are included as well. Excellent test prep, as the wording of the questions is aligned with Item Specs. Excellent idea for a rigorous center! Enjoy!
