This six page math resource contains seven holiday fraction riddles which provide students practice in recognizing equivalent fractions while at the same time, reducing and identifying fractional parts in lowest terms.

Specific words are provided, and the students are to figure out the correct fractional part of each particular word. (Example: The first 1/3 of LEDGER which would be LE.) If the fractional part is correctly identified, when the students write the fractional parts on the lines provided, a new word is formed. Each group of new words becomes a holiday riddle. These can be completed all at once or divided up and used as a focus activity each day for seven days. Another idea would be to intersperse them throughout the month of December. Answers are included at the end of the resource.

I also offer different riddles for six months in a 33 page bundle at a discounted price:
