Fractions are an integral part of everyday mathematical understanding. This resource is designed to help your students become more fluent in working with halves, quarters and eighths. Task cards can be used in a number of ways from a scoot game (instructions included in your download) to a Maths centre. This makes task cards a flexible option for any classroom.
In this PDF, you will find 32 high-quality, full-colour task cards to support the teaching of fractions (halves, quarters and eighths), as well as black and white recording sheets for easy printing. The recording sheets have been divided into three sections to increase the flexibility of these cards. Are you only focusing on halves? Just use the first 10 cards with the first recording sheet! Laminating the task cards will increase their durability.
This resource is Christmas/Winter themed, so it will fit in beautifully at this time of year, but the theme is subtle enough that this resource can be used year-round. Check out the preview for a closer look.
This resource has been aligned to the Australian Curriculum for Year 2 and the New South Wales Curriculum for Stage 1. An outline of the curriculum standards supported by this resource is included in your download. This resource is also suitable for improving fluency in higher grades.

PLEASE NOTE: You may have noticed my Australian spelling in this listing (e.g. 'centre' instead of 'center' and 'colour' instead of 'color'). Not to worry - whenever a spelling variation affects a worksheet or printable in my products, I always include an American spelling version in the same download!
