These common core aligned fraction worksheets are sure to be a hit with students because they are not your typical math worksheet, they will be a hit with you because they will make students think. Students will love solving the riddle "Why do fractions like digging holes?" as they work on identifying the fractional amounts of different words. (They like being part of a "whole!") Students will work on adding and subtracting fractions with common denominators when they work on the second thinking sheet and then they will graph their answers according to the directions to make a sailboat picture. Finally, students will challenge themselves to find equivalent fractions using the pictures. These thinking sheets are perfect for fraction skill reinforcement during center work, differentiated instruction, or for early finishers. Each download will include the three worksheets along with answer keys for each worksheet.
