"Fraction Charter" is a simple hands-on tool that makes it easy for students to begin working on finding equivalent fractions or learning how to simplify fractions by using a multiplication chart. It helps students see patterns and relationships as they begin working with fractions. I have found that students have great success learning and transitioning into working with fractions when understanding and using this simple tool. They soon put it away when they no longer need it.

It should work with students in grades 3-6. I have used it for many years in my fourth and fifth grade classrooms.

Teachers are sometimes astonished that they can use a multiplication chart to work with fractions.

This comes with directions on how to make a "Fraction Tracker" from the reproducible master. It comes with photos and descriptions on how to use with your students.

Please look at my "Move Around Math" and other products at my TPT store.

Add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators (including mixed numbers) by replacing given fractions with equivalent fractions in such a way as to produce an equivalent sum or difference of fractions with like denominators. For example, 2/3 + 5/4 = 8/12 + 15/12 = 23/12. (In general, 𝘒/𝘣 + 𝘀/π˜₯ = (𝘒π˜₯ + 𝘣𝘀)/𝘣π˜₯.)
Explain why a fraction 𝘒/𝘣 is equivalent to a fraction (𝘯 Γ— 𝘒)/(𝘯 Γ— 𝘣) by using visual fraction models, with attention to how the number and size of the parts differ even though the two fractions themselves are the same size. Use this principle to recognize and generate equivalent fractions.
Recognize and generate simple equivalent fractions, (e.g., 1/2 = 2/4, 4/6 = 2/3). Explain why the fractions are equivalent, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
