Product Description
Building a solid understanding and foundation of fractions will help students be more successful in subsequent grades. This product is designed to sequentially help students learn about fractions while meeting the new Common Core Standards.

Students start by partitioning shapes, identifying unit fractions, and learning vocabulary. They will move into practicing with concrete representations, using number lines to work with fractions, and playing matching or memory games with the included cards. Students will also solve word problems by modeling the concrete representation of a fraction and transition into thinking more abstractly about fractions. The word problems scaffold students' thinking by having the beginning problems ask them probing questions about the problem (which also helps struggling problem solvers).

This product also includes a set of fraction strips, a poster that identifies the vocabulary and parts of a fraction, cards that can be used for a memory or matching game, answer keys, and worksheets that can be used for practice, centers, homework, or assessments.
