This unit has 15 days worth of teaching, practicing, creating, working with, assessing, writing about, identifying, partitioning, adding & subtracting (with like denominators) fractions! This unit is geared to 1st & 2nd grade. These are the plans I used in my 2nd grade class room that had GREAT results! Check out the standards below.
Each Day has class-wide engagement, questioning, a cooperative learning opportunity, and a practice for the given lesson! Each day scaffolds on the last, making understanding easier on the students.
This is noooooo prep. Everything you need is here. All you do is print, cut (when needed), teach, and watch your kids soar!
Concept Taught Each Day:
Day 1 - Pre Assessment & Introduction
Day 2 - Equal vs. Unequal Partitions
Day 3 - Partitioning: Halves, Thirds, Fourths
Day 4 - Partitioning, Shading, & Numerators and Denominators (Part 1)
Day 5 - Partitioning, Shading, & Numerators and Denominators (Part 2)
Day 6 - Fractional Sets
Day 7 - Fractions on Number Lines
Day 8 - Mid- Assessment – Review Practice
Day 9 - Comparing Fractions (In different forms)
Day 10 - Adding Fractions with Like Denominators (With a Little Bit About Mixed Numbers)
Day 11 - Subtracting Fractions with Like Denominators
Day 12 - Symmetry – One Line
Day 13 - Symmetry – Two or More Lines
Day 14 - Partition, Fraction, and Symmetry Review
Day 15 - Post Assessment
Each of day you will explore the world of geometry to deepen students' understanding and mastery of concepts.
There are anchor charts, assessments (pre, mid, & post), practice pages, interactive notebook activities, class-wide collaborative learning for the class, group practice, projects, review activities, journaling opportunities, and exit tickets!
Each lesson has an Activation of Engagement, Questioning, Student Practice, and Closure.
This set is easily differentiated to accommodate each and every learner you teach!
(2nd Grade Intro CCSS)
Students describe and analyze shapes by examining their sides and angles. Students investigate, describe, and reason about decomposing and combining shapes to make other shapes. Through building, drawing, and analyzing two- and three-dimensional shapes, students develop a foundation for understanding area, volume, congruence, similarity, and SYMMETRY in later grades.
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.1.G.A.3Partition circles and rectangles into two and four equal shares, describe the shares using the words halves, fourths, and quarters, and use the phrases half of, fourth of, andquarter of. Describe the whole as two of, or four of the shares. Understand for these examples that decomposing into more equal shares creates smaller shares.
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.2.OA.C.4Use addition to find the total number of objects arranged in rectangular arrays with up to 5 rows and up to 5 columns; write an equation to express the total as a sum of equal addends.
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.2.G.A.2Partition a rectangle into rows and columns of same-size squares and count to find the total number of them.
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.2.G.A.3Partition circles and rectangles into two, three, or four equal shares, describe the shares using the words halves, thirds, half of, a third of, etc., and describe the whole as two halves, three thirds, four fourths. Recognize that equal shares of identical wholes need not have the same shape.
