My biggest pet peeve in teaching is pushing a concept on students when they lack the deeper understanding it requires. Yes, they can memorize the skill, but do they really know what they're doing? I've used this unit of lessons with my fifth graders for the past decade. Students are not ready to add, subtract, multiply, or divide fractions if they don't understand what fractions truly mean!
This bundle would also be perfect for a 4th grade classroom. It deeply covers Comparing and Ordering Fractions (4.NF.2) and Equivalent Fractions (4.NF.1) and also introduces students to improper fractions and mixed numbers, preparing them for 4th grade fraction operations.
The 11 lesson packets are perfect for whole group lessons or small group remediation. The packets also include teaching notes with common misconceptions and specific questions to ask to push understanding. The 4 fraction games can be used as a class, for math centers, or for individual remediation.
