PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Help your students to solidify the skill of adding and subtracting fractions or mixed numbers with like denominators by having them practice using a series of simple games over the course of three months. Send them along on the Jack-O-Lantern Jaunt, the Turkey Trot, and the Holiday Hustle with these seasonally-inspired math activities and learning centers perfect for those early months of the school year
.
Each game consists of two different sets of recording sheets and game cards. I prefer to use the first set as an introductory, whole-class activity, and then use the second (and remaining) sets as a learning center for the duration of the season or month.

There are two methods of play; solely dependent upon the amount of time you have available in preparation of this fun activity. One method involves game cards, where one side of a paper card has an addition or subtraction problem, and the other side will have the correct sum or difference. Students play by solving the problems that are face-up on a card, record their answers on a recording sheet, self-check the answer on the back, and if he or she is correct, they get to spin a paper-clip spinner and move along the trail of jack-o-lanterns, stepping stones, or well-wrapped gifts.

The second method of play eliminates the use of the game cards, thus reducing the overall preparation time. Students use a single die to determine problems to solve on their recording sheets, independently self-check the answer with the corresponding answer key, and if he or she is correct, they get to spin a paper-clip spinner and move along the trail of jack-o-lanterns, stepping stones, or well-wrapped gifts.

This file contains:

●suggested procedures and management for both methods of play (whole-class and learning center)

●2 Jack-O-Lantern Jaunt game boards… they differ only in background colors.

●6 addition recording sheets with corresponding answer keys for the students to record their answers to the various questions they will solve during the game (and for teachers to have answer documentation)

●6 subtraction recording sheets with corresponding answer keys for the students to record their answers to the various questions they will solve during the game (and for teachers to have answer documentation)

●6 paper-clip spinners with 6 and 8 outcomes

●6 sets of 16 subtraction question cards and 16 subtraction answer cards

Your students are certain to have a fun time playing these games, all the while solidifying their ability to solve sums and differences of fractions and mixed numbers with like denominators.

Enjoy!
