PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Fun with Fractions
Do your kiddos need extra practice identifying fractions and showing fractions? In this product there are posters, a mini book, games, and activities to help your kiddos do just that.

Begin by printing the posters out and the mini booklet. Teach your students what fractions are, what a whole is, and what halves and fourths/quarters are. Have your students write down what each is in their booklet. The students can use this to help them with the games & activities.

Print the “Don’t Eat the Fraction” boards first. Divide your students into pairs or groups. Each group will need a bag of candy/snacks. I like to use SMARTIES because they are easy to clean up and to pass out. The group/pair starts by putting the candies on each space on the board. One student goes to a place in the room where they cannot hear their group talking. The rest of the students choose a space that will be “it.” The student who was gone, comes back and begins taking the candies off the spaces one by one. In order to get to keep the candy, he or she must tell what fractional part is shaded in. The student continues doing this until he/she picks the space that was chosen earlier as “it.” The student only keeps the candy that he/she picked up before the chosen piece was found. This continues until all players have taken a turn. Then the groups can switch boards and play again.

I have my students play the SUPER Tic-Tac-Toe games the next day. Copy the boards back to back. Each board has an answer key that will be copied on the back. This allows the students to check their answers as they play. Put the boards in sheet protectors or laminate them. The students will use the boards as dry erase boards. Pair your students up and give each pair a board, a dry erase marker and something to erase with. The students begin by

This allows the students to check their answers as they play. Put the boards in sheet protectors or laminate them. The students will use the boards as dry erase boards. Pair your students up and give each pair a board, a dry erase marker and something to erase with. The students begin by
deciding who will be X’s and who will be O’s. The student then chooses a space where they will either say what fractional part is shown or perform the task in the space. Once the student has done this, his/her partner checks the answer on the back. There are letters in the lower left corner of each space. This helps the student know what letter to look for to find the answer on the back. If the student gets the answer correct, he/she may put a mark in the space. If he/she does not get the answer correct, it is the next player’s turn. This goes back and forth until one player wins. A player can win by getting 4 X’s or O’s in a row vertically, horizontally, or diagonally, making a box of four X’s or O’s, or getting X’s or O’s in all four corners. Once a student has won, the group should erase the board, trade with another group, and play again.

The last day of this unit, I use the scoot/hunt cards. This can be used as an assessment or as a review. I like to cut them apart and put them up around the room to keep my kiddos moving. There are also student pages that will need to be copied back to back. Each student needs one student page. The students will go around the room and read each card. They will find the letter on the page that corresponds to the letter on the card. The students are being asked to pretend they are servers taking orders. Each order (card) gives the student a food item that is rectangular or circular. The students are asked to “prepare” and divide these foods in specific ways. All the cards helps the students practice showing fractions. There is also an answer key included so you can easily check the student pages.
