This set of 24 Journal Prompts will make an easy no-prep guided math station and covers all of the 4th grade Fraction TEKS: 4.3A, 4.3B, 4.3C, 4.3D, 4.3E, 4.3F, 4.2G, 4.3G & 4.2H. Topics include comparing fractions, proving fractions are equivalent, fraction and decimal relationships, fractions on a number line, decomposing fractions, representing fractions as the sum of unit fractions, using benchmark fractions to estimate sums and differences, and adding and subtracting fractions.
I absolutely love using math journals in my classroom! They are the perfect way to engage students in deep thinking and assess their understanding.
Great ways to use these journal prompts:
-No-Prep Math Station
-Homework (that isn't busy work)
-Guide a Small Group Lesson
There are 12 unique prompt questions. There are 12 prompts with fractions named in them, and I created a sample response for each of them to give you ideas or to use as a sample at a math station. There are 12 identical prompts with blank boxes for the fractions that can be used time and time again. I give 3 suggestions on fractions that will work wonderfully with each of those prompts, including a challenge version.

This resource works seamlessly with my other 4th grade Fractions resources and is part of the comprehensive 400+page Fractions Unit & Bundle found HERE.
This is a TEKS centered resource. While others may be “TEKS-aligned,” they often cover Common Core standards as well. My Texas specific resources cover the TEKS and nothing but the TEKS, so that teachers don’t have to spend additional time sorting through what to use and what not to use. I know how precious each and every school day is; there is no time to waste. As with all of my resources, it is designed with STAAR in mind.
