I created this Fraction Kit to help my students plot fractions on a number line. Included are teacher modeling cards, 2 kinds of fraction number lines (ones with colored fraction bars and ones without), fraction picture cards and fraction number cards.
A preview is provided and questions are welcome.
Provided are 5 days of the lesson plans I used with my students.
Day 1- Teacher modeling of the number line using pictures and students play Scoot with the number lines and picture cards.
Day 2- Students work on cooperative groups to plot fraction pictures on number lines.
Day 3- Teacher modeling of the number line using fraction numbers. Students play Scoot with number lines and fraction numbers.
Day 4- Students work in cooperative groups to plot fraction numbers on a number line.
Day 5- Students are given an open number line to partition and plot fractions (eighths) independently.
My third grade students enjoyed these activities and the games provided lots of practice. They were all proficient according to scores on the end of unit test.
This would be perfect to use with students who did not grasp the concept, either in a small group or during RTI.
